Girl hit by bus

A girl was hit by a bus friday afternoon on the U of M campus, just south of 4th street. The student was riding her bike and was stopped at a stop light with the bus. When the light turned green she went forward to pass the bus and the bus was turning right. She swerved and her bike fell. The bus ran over her legs. An on looker said the bus rolled over her legs like a speed bump and she heard her legs snap and pop.

This was the only article I could find on this story. It was in the Mn Daily, which makes sense since it was on the university of minnesota campus, however I'm surprised it didn't make more news considering that is was involving a metro bus.
