SEATTLE (AP) — A 28-year-old man is in serious condition at a hospital after a shuttle van veered onto a downtown Seattle sidewalk, hit pedestrians and struck a building.

Harborview Medical Center spokeswoman Barbara Clements said Friday morning that the 28-year-old man's condition was upgraded from critical. She says the van driver and two others who were brought to the Seattle hospital Thursday have been released.

Authorities say it appears the driver had a medical emergency and lost control of the vehicle just before noon.

The white passenger van jumped a curb, struck several pedestrians and hit a Gap retail store.

Seattle police were investigating.
