At about 5:35pm, on Thursday, October 30, 2008, officers from Area C-6 (South Boston) responded to a radio call for a pedestrian struck in the area of 73 Seaport Blvd. On arrival, officers located a 35 year-old female lying on the ground unconscious. According to witnesses, the victim was struck by a shuttle bus or a min-bus. Passengers on the bus say the victim fell into the side of the bus. Witnesses further state that they saw the victim lose her balance and fall backwards from the sidewalk into the side of the passing bus. The victim was immediately transported to Mass General Hospital where she was later pronounced. At this point, the preliminary investigation indicates that the incident was accidental. No charges are pending at this time.
