Authorities say 74-year-old Edna Rodgerson had just gotten off of her normal bus at around two o’clock Wednesday afternoon.
She was crossing Union Street, when she was hit by a taxi driven by 68-year-old Marc Derosier. He did brakes when he saw Rodgerson, but couldn’t stop in time.
The accident happened near the intersection with I-95, which is usually a busy area.
Sergeant Bob Bishop says the traffic made it challenging at first to get everything in order.
Emergency crews took Rodgerson to the hospital, but she didn’t survive.
Derosiers has a heart condition, and was taken to the hospital as well. At last report he appeared to be doing better.
Police tell us there won’t be any charges.
