A 74-year-old woman was killed yesterday when the operator of an MTA bus struck her while she was attempting to cross the street.

The NYPD says Gloria Mabry, 74, was trying to cross Dreiser Loop at Co-op City Boulevard at about 6:45 p.m. yesterday when the driver of a BX 38 bus hit her as it was making a left turn on Dreiser Loop. According to the Daily News, witnesses say Mabry was caught under the rear of the bus; she was transported to Jacobi Hospital, where she was pronounced dead.

Mabry lived nearby, and her son Reginald told Bronx News 12 she was on the way home from the supermarket and pushing a cart full of groceries when she was hit. "There's no way whatsoever that a vehicle going a safe speed could not have seen that little lady," he said. She was a mother to three adult children, and had one grandchild.

Authorities say the bus driver stayed on the scene, and the investigation is ongoing; in August, an 82-year-old woman was fatally struck by an MTA bus in East New York when it was making a left turn.
