St. Louis Post-Dispatch: Bus strikes, kills advocate of bicycle safety

One of the country’s top experts on bicycle and pedestrian safety was killed Tuesday morning when she was struck by a tour bus while crossing a downtown intersection.

Susie Stephens, 36, of Winthrop, Wash., was fatally struck shortly after 8:30 a.m. as she tried to cross eastbound at Fourth and Chestnut streets. The driver of the Vandalia Bus Lines vehicle told police he did not see Stephens as he made a left turn from eastbound Chestnut Street onto northbound Fourth Street.

This is really quite amazing.
