A 64-year-old woman was fatally struck by a SEPTA bus on the evening of Monday, November 28, around 5 pm. The Cherry Hill, New Jersey, resident was crossing at the corner of 23rd Street and Chestnut Street in Center City, pushing her 9-month old grandson, when the bus made a left turn, and the woman was struck. Although the baby in the stroller suffered no injuries, the accident took the woman’s life. Despite being visibly unharmed, emergency workers brought the child to the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP) as a precaution.
The 32-year-old female bus driver of the SEPTA bus claims she did not see the woman before the bus fatally struck her. At the time, three passengers occupied the bus. Those passengers suffered no injuries.
