A bus making a right turn fatally struck, ran over and dragged man some 700 feet down a Venice street yesterday afternoon, according to KTLA. At about 4:32 p.m., the Metro bus was making a turn onto northbound Pacific Avenue from westbound Rose when a 30-year-old man was crossing Pacific and happened to be in the blind spot as the vehicle made the turn, police believe. The 51-year-old driver was not aware until other pedestrians flagged him down. The Los Angeles Fire Department responded to an address on Pacific near Navy Street. A map linked here shows the possible dragging distance.
