Commuter killed, Vancouver BC, (Lions Gate Bridge/Stanley Park area)
61 yr old woman commuting on MUP. Lost balance somehow and fell onto roadway...hit by a bus and died instantly. Probably clipped a pedestrian and fell.
It wasn't on the Lions Gate Bridge, but just south of it, on the Stanley Park causeway (which is not really a causeway). The causeway has a MUP that doesn't see many pedestrians at all compared with the rest of the park.
Saw that on the news yesterday and today...
This kind of accident, almost happened to me. I was stupidly riding on the sidewalk a couple years ago. When I lost my balance and fell into the adjacent road. There were no pedestrians around.
When it happened to me, I clipped the edge of a newspaper vending machine, that stuck out past the edge of the bus stop shelter I was going around. Damn near got my head squished by an Oldsmobile!
