Police said they were notified shortly before 8 a.m. that a man had stolen an empty bus in south Seattle.

The man swerved across traffic, ran red lights and appeared to “purposefully ram other vehicles.”

Authorities say he eventually struck a King County Metro bus and later crashed into a light-rail station construction site.
