A 22 year-old Mamaroneck, NY resident, Seth Kahn, died from injuries suffered when he was struck by a New York City bus last week. The bus was reportedly turning left onto Ninth Avenue from 53rd Street. Kahn was crossing Ninth Avenue at the time of the accident.
Authorities believe that the bus had a green light and Kahn was crossing with a walk signal. However, the bus driver, Jeremy Philhower, was issued a summons by the NYPD for failing to yield to a pedestrian. Reports also indicate that Mr. Philhower had just recently returned to work from a suspension for text messaging while driving the bus.
