Failure to stop leads to Brooklyn’s woman’s death

According to a January 26, 2013 Brooklyn Daily article, a bus accident in Brooklyn leads to the driver walking away and a woman dead.

Prior to the accident the woman, Lorraine, was waiting for the BM2 bus with her husband. Due to the cold weather they chose to wait in their car. Once the couple saw the bus approaching the woman got out of the car and began to cross the street. That is when a charter bus ran a stop sign and hit the woman. The whole accident occurred in seconds, with the woman’s husband looking on.

Witnesses to the accident commented that the husband could only scream “Oh my God, oh my God, somebody help!” until first responders came to the scene. The accident occurred roughly at 7:00 a.m. and the woman was declared dead at the scene at 7:13 a.m. The charter bus driver was not injured by the crash and although an investigation is ongoing no criminal charges have been issued.  According to the witnesses, the bus driver went into a state of shock and needed assistance to leave the bus.
