Just before 4 a.m. this morning, a pedestrian was struck by a vehicle in the Bronx--and thrown into the path of a city bus. WABC 7 reports that "the 29-year-old was hit by the vehicle at the intersection of East 180th Street and Washington Avenue," where a Bx36 bus was running through. The driver of the first vehicle fled while the bus driver stayed at the scene. On Long Island, a man in a motorized wheelchair was struck and killed by a car. The victim had been traveling on the shoulder of Route 25, and 24-year-old Lauren Dean hit him and kept driving. She was later apprehended and charged with DWI, leaving the scene of the accident and driving with a suspended license.
