So that's why I was stuck on various buses for an hour this morning:

A man was seriously injured when he was hit by a Metro bus in downtown Seattle this morning — but walked for more than a block to a coffee shop.

The unusual incident occurred at about 7:20 a.m. when the man, about 30, was hit by a bus – hard enough to crack the bus’s windshield – near Third Avenue and Pine Street, said Kyle Moore, Seattle Fire Department spokesman.

He walked to the Starbucks at Fourth Avenue and Pine Street and went inside. An employee there said this morning that it was clear he had suffered a head injury.

Here's wishing the hard-hit pedestrian a full and speedy recovery.
