According to a recent article from New York Times, a school bus carrying young children struck and killed a woman Thursday afternoon at a busy, construction-narrowed intersection on the Upper East Side, the authorities said.
The woman, who was not immediately identified but appeared to be in her 40s, had been walking north on the east side of Second Avenue at 93rd Street. The westbound school bus, ferrying six students ages 5 to 11 from a local Roman Catholic school, struck her just before 3:30 p.m., the police said. She died at the scene.
The accident came just hours after Mayor Bill de Blasio unveiled a budget proposal calling for millions in new spending for the Transportation and Police Departments to meet his ambitious goal of reducing traffic fatalities in the city to zero. So far this year, 40 pedestrians have died in traffic crashes, down from 60 pedestrians’ deaths at this point last year.
