The Seattle Police Department is investigating after a man died and a woman was seriously injured in the International District in a crash involving a Metro bus.

Officers were called to 5th Avenue South and South Main Street at 10:40 p.m. Saturday, when two people riding on one bike crashed into the side of a Metro coach. Officers found an adult male unconscious with life-threatening injuries and an adult woman conscious with serious injuries. Seattle Fire Department medics transported both to Harborview Medical Center, where the man later died.

A Seattle Police drug-recognition expert tested the driver of the coach and found no signs of impairment.

Police say traffic collision detectives are investigating the incident.
