This case takes place in New York and involves a bus operator who struck a woman as she was crossing the street. The bus had stopped for a stop sign at an intersection. After coming to a full stop, the bus made a right hand turn onto the intersecting street. In doing so, the bus struck and killed the plaintiff, who was crossing the street in the crosswalk at the time. The weather was clear, and there appeared to be no obstructions to the driver’s view. A witness from a nearby store claimed that he saw the decedent crossing the street in the crosswalk when the bus started forward and made its turn. However, the police did not arrest the driver and concluded the accident was not the driver’s fault. It is alleged that the bus driver did not take the necessary precautions when making the turn.
