Sadly, the 61-year-old woman struck by a Metro bus on Monday October 5th, 2009, passed away at Washington Hospital Center on Tuesday. Stephanie Richardson, a clericall assistant, was struck as she attempted to cross Mount Olivet Road in  Northeast Washington.

The last Metrobus collision-related death took place more than a year ago. Metro is investigating the incident and has reissued a pedestrian safety bulletin to all of its bus drivers.

This has been a rough year for Metro with the June 22nd, 2009 Fort Totten Metro crash and a series of other deaths and injuries. Another potential disaster was averted yesterday when a collector shoe fell  off a Red Line train, causing a big commotion and generating a two-hour delay.
