Potholes to Blame for Delancey Bus Accident

This morning, the site of last night’s deadly bus accident at the corner of Ludlow and Delancey is quiet. As if nothing happened there at all. NY1 has more information on the incident, in which a female cyclist was hit by a yellow school bus and died from her injuries. At issue was the pockmarked pavement of Delancey, something we’ve covered in great detail in the past.
A witness says the woman was riding her bicycle on Delancey when she hit a pothole and fell behind the bus, which then backed over her.
“She was just trying to get away from the school bus and the school bus just kept driving, and it was getting closer and closer to her. And everybody’s screaming at him, ‘There’s somebody behind you!’ And she was trying to avoid the pothole, but once she hit the pothole, that’s when she fell over,” said one witness.
