According to the NYPD, Marisol Martinez was struck by a north-bound Q59 bus on the corner of Meeker and Union Avenues Saturday morning. Though police responded at 1:27 a.m., the 21-year-old victim was pronounced dead due to severe body trauma upon arrival at Woodhull Hospital. CBS New York reports the 50-year-old female bus driver who was behind the wheel is “shaken up” following the incident, which is now being investigated by the NYPD Collision Investigation Squad. Vision Zero can’t get here soon enough.
