A 21-year old woman died and a 29-year old man left in critical condition after the motorcycle they were riding was involved in a crash with a Transit Authority of River City ("TARC") bus Wednesday evening. The two were heading south on Dixie Highway when the TARC bus, which was traveling north, made a left-hand turn in front of them in the 9000 block of Dixie Highway at approximately 9:30 p.m., according to Louisville Metro Police spokeswoman Carey Klain.
The motorcycle struck the side of the bus. It was not immediately clear who was driving the motorcycle. The two were taken to University Hospital, where the woman was declared dead and the man was in critical condition Wednesday evening, Klain said.
Four or five teenagers on the bus were taken to Kosair Children's Hospital with minor injuries, Klain said. The crash happened at a stoplight next to a shopping center. It was not clear who had the right of way from the traffic lights, however, Klain said the bus and motorcycle would have had a green light at the same time. Neither the man nor the woman on the motorcycle was wearing a helmet. Alcohol and drugs do not appear to have been a factor, but that will not be known for certain until a toxicology report is complete, according to Klain. Story by Courier-Journal.
