Woman Dies Month After Being Hit by School Bus in Chinatown
A pedestrian struck by a school bus in Chinatown last month has succumbed to her injuries.
On December 16, at approximately 1:45pm, 67-year-old Ahhon Lau was struck in the intersection of Monroe and Catherine Streets.
When officers arrived at the scene, Lau was found unconscious and unresponsive, with trauma about the body. EMS transported her to Bellevue, where she stayed until her passing on Sunday (January 16).
Further investigation revealed the pedestrian was walking along Monroe Street when she was struck by a Selby Transport Corp. school bus, operated by a 63-year-old male, which was traveling on Catherine Street. The driver remained on the scene and was not injured. Cops didn’t charge him, cops said.
The investigation remains ongoing by the NYPD Highway District’s Collision Investigation Squad.
