Police say an MTA bus struck and killed a 21-year-old woman in Brooklyn early Saturday. Marisol Martinez was walking on Union Avenue in Williamsburg at around 1:30 a.m. when a bus made a turn and hit her. Martinez was declared dead after being taken to Woodhull Hospital.
Police say charges haven’t been brought against the bus driver but the accident is still being investigated. Residents who live near the intersection where Martinez was killed say it can be difficult to navigate, with an off-ramp from the BQE merging into several roads.
