Vancouver police release more details on fatal party bus incident

Vancouver police have released more details about this weekend's party bus collision that left one woman dead.

Sgt. Randy Fincham says about two dozen people were celebrating a birthday inside a party bus in the city's downtown core on Saturday night.

A 23-year-old woman inside the bus fell out through an open door as the vehicle made a left-hand turn (from West Hastings Street onto Burrard Street) around 9:30 p.m.

Fincham says she was struck by the bus, after which passengers alerted the driver and he immediately stopped.

Paramedics pronounced the woman dead at the scene but her name has not been released.

Police say the bus driver is co-operating with authorities.
