CHICAGO (CBS) — A 19-month-old toddler girl ran into traffic Monday afternoon and was struck and killed by a CTA bus in Chicago’s South Shore neighborhood.
A witness says he saw the girl with some adults on the east side of South Shore Drive at 77th Street when she suddenly bolted into the path of the No. 6 Jackson Park Express. The accident occurred around 3 p.m.
The girl, Cherish Meyers, was believed to have died instantly.
“The baby was 10 or 12 feet in front of them, and then she was right out on the street. Then there the bus was,” witness Willie Butler tells CBS 2’s Mike Parker.
