Police have yet to determine what caused 27 year old Kristen Fink,of the 4400 block of Decatur St. to cross the street where she did and get killed by a School Bus yesterday, October 22 2013. The crash happened on busy Frankford Ave. at Aldine Street, just after 10:30 a.m.
Fink was run over by the bus and was trapped under the bus for a brief time. The bus was being operated by a driver trainee, who had not yet been passed on a School Bus,for Durham Services. The area where the crash happened is misleading, as Aldine ends and some one crossing Frankford Ave at Aldine St. is actually crossing mid block on the other side of the street.
There were no other injuries. police cause a major inconvenience with pedestrian business traffic, putting up yellow tape along the sidewalk. which prevented folks from going into area businesses and medical appointments they had. many business owners complained of the pointless efforts to control the foot traffic at a cost to their livelihood.
