The fatal bus and vehicle crash in Seattle today has the potential to impact the northwest blood supply. Four people were killed, eight were critically injured. At least twenty others received minor injuries. The injured patients are being treated in trauma centers.  

The Lane Blood Center says it is part of Bloodworks Northwest, a regional network. The center in Eugene says it is responding to additional orders for blood components from a number of the hospitals receiving injured patients.
