If Anyone Saw a School Bus on Wilshire Yesterday...

LAist relies on your reader support.
Your tax-deductible gift today powers our reporters and keeps us independent. We rely on you, our reader, not paywalls to stay funded because we believe important news and information should be freely accessible to all.

Then you might have some information for police. At around 8:30 a.m. Tuesday morning, 31-year-old Vicky Noh was crossing Wilshire Blvd. in a marked crosswalk at New Hampshire Avenue when she was struck and killed by a yellow school bus that drove away. The 40 foot long bus is described as a "newer model with a flat front end" and was actually a charter bus, not one that transports children on a daily basis. The driver is described as a Latino with long hair in a ponytail.

Remember, even at unmarked crosswalks, it is legal for a pedestrian to cross -- therefore cars and bicycles must yield.

Anyone with information that could help is asked to call Detectives Felix Padilla or Tracy McClanahan of the LAPD's Central Traffic Division at (213) 972-1825. This was on Wilshire Blvd, one of Los Angeles' most congested streets. How did no one catch anymore details?
