EDMONTON — A 13-year-old girl has died in Edmonton after police say she was struck in a crosswalk by a city bus that kept on going.
Police say the girl was crossing the street at an intersection in the city's northwest on Saturday evening when the bus made a left turn across the crosswalk.
They say she was dragged a short distance, and the bus didn't stop.
Police say they don't think the bus driver was aware of the collision.
Police say they're still investigating the death, but speed and alcohol aren't believed to have been factors.
They're asking anyone who may have information about the incident to call them.
Last month, a union representing bus drivers said an Edmonton senior's death may have been due to a blind spot in the vehicle.
The Amalgamated Transit Union International said manufacturers' poorly chosen mirrors and side windows can result in drivers not seeing pedestrians as the bus is turning.
The woman, who was in her 80s, died October 4 when police said she was hit by a bus making a left turn while she was in a marked crosswalk.
The driver has since been charged.
The union says one person is hit by a bus every 10 days in North America.
