Metro bus hits pedestrian (again) (cont'd.)

Maybe more pedestrians are wearing city camouflage:

A pedestrian was hit by a Metro bus this afternoon at the Metro Transit Center, at Fannin and Pressler. The man stepped into the pedestrian crosswalk, "so the operator will be at fault," said Raequel Roberts , a spokeswoman for Metro.

The pedestrian was taken to an area hospital, "but his injuries do not appear to be life-threatening," Roberts said.

Recent Metro bus accidents have occurred on March 23, February 13, and a fatal one on January 21. Obviously Metro Police Chief Tom Lambert needs to have a chat with Metro bus drivers about their understanding of safety.
