Police arrested an MTA bus driver last night on Avenue D and East Houston after he struck a woman in the crosswalk.
Per ABC 7:
Just before 9 p.m. Monday, police said the M14D was traveling south on Avenue D and hit a 61-year-old woman while making a right turn to head east on Houston Street.
The pedestrian had been walking south within the crosswalk, according to the New York City Police Department.
Her left leg was trapped under the bus and was later freed by emergency workers.
The pedestrian, Aurora Beauchamp from Miami, was taken to Bellevue with a broken hip, pelvis and ribs and a bruised bladder, according to her daughter.
Per NBC 4:
[H]er daughter says she fears recent chemo treatment for her mother's cancer will complicate surgical efforts to repair the broken bones she suffered in the collision.
The driver, 41-year-old Eduard Khanimov, was arrested on a charge of failing to yield to a pedestrian.
