  • Hey D-

    Did you find any stories about the horrible death from the LADOT Dash bus yesterday at 5th and Flower?

    It was really horrific, and I saw it first thing Wednesday morning on my commute. A woman was slaughtered by the bus. Brains on the pavement. I’m still reeling from seeing it.

    I’ve been trying to find articles about it, but can’t seem to find any.

  • I read a description of the crash on a forum yesterday, but haven’t seen any media today. I was going to write it up as a longer story if I can ever find the details…

    First, a prayer for that poor woman. You aren’t the only one still reeling. A coworker and I were discussing it this morning.

    I’ve been taking the bus to work for several months now, and really enjoying it, but I’m so spooked about it that I’m going to switch back to driving for a while…even though it means spending much more $ on parking and gas…Knowing more will hopefully bring closure.

    Yeah, that lady getting hit by the bus is pretty bad. Looks like BusTard is vindicated.
