The police bicycle officer pinned under the tire of a trolley during the Sounders FC championship celebration Tuesday was in satisfactory condition as of Wednesday evening.
The Seattle police bicycle officer injured Tuesday during the Sounders FC championship march and parade remains at Harborview Medical Center, a hospital spokeswoman said Wednesday.
Medics took the officer to the hospital with what police spokesmen described as nonlife-threatening injuries after he collided with a trolley at Queen Anne Avenue North and Mercer Street. The trolley was carrying Sounders representatives. A tire pinned the officer.
Harborview spokeswoman Susan Gregg said shortly before 5:10 p.m. Wednesday the officer remained at the hospital in satisfactory care. No further details on his injuries were available.
A witness to the incident, Peter Choi, said Tuesday the officer couldn’t move while he was pinned. “He was breathing. He was talking. Everything like that,” he said.
