According to the Washington Examiner, Stephanie Richardson, age 47, was killed by a Washington, D.C Metrobus. She was riding the Metrobus on October 5, 2009, when she got off at her stop, began to cross the street in front of the bus, and was struck by a second Metrobus. This second bus was driving in the same direction and came up along the side of the first bus. The D.C police said she was at the Mount Olivet Road stop, between Trinidad and Montello avenues. Richardson was brought to the Washington Hospital Center, and died the next day.

Pedestrian Safety: Stop, look and listen before you walk across traffic.

The case is under investigation, and the bus driver’s blood was tested, and they were placed on a paid leave. This is not the first case of a pedestrian hit by the city’s transit vehicle, though this is the first fatality since September 2008. The Metro’s cause for safety has now been revamped after this incident. They had previously in 2007 put in place “warning strobe lights on 100 buses in the District.”

They need to determine more precautionary methods because this issue is a serious one:

“The District has a higher rate of pedestrian fatalities than cities such as New York, Chicago and Los Angeles, according to a D.C. Department of Transportation report. More than 600 pedestrians are typically hit by vehicles of all types in the city annually, with more than a dozen killed nearly every year.”
