A tragic accident involving a TriMet bus and five pedestrians resulted
in two deaths and three injured. The accident occurred late Saturday night
on April 24, 2010. Investigators are still piecing together what happened.
What we know is an empty but in service TriMet bus was turning left from
a one-way street onto a two-way street when it struck a group of five

Several of the pedestrians became trapped underneath the bus. Though it
was late at night, the streets were crowded with pedestrians, as a show
at Harvey’s Comedy Club had just gotten out (the five pedestrians
had attended the show together).
Along similar lines, Jane Paulson has a case that goes to trial before

involves a bus accident. The bus made a left-hand turn and hit her client
in the crosswalk. As a result, her client had to have her left lower leg
