A woman exiting a bus was struck and killed Wednesday morning along Route 202 in Wilmington, Del. -- not far from Widener University's satellite campus.
Police say 29-year-old Princess Ibekaku had just gotten off a DART bus and was trying to cross the busy roadway near Rocky Run Parkway around 8:10 a.m. when she was hit by a Dodge Avenger driven by Taleah Everett, 24.
Ibekaku was rushed to Christiana Hospital Trauma Center where she was pronounced dead.
According to a preliminary investigation, the victim was to cross the street within a crosswalk, but failed to see that on-coming traffic had the right of way at the time.
No charges are expected to be filed.
The northbound lanes of the roadway -- also known as Concord Pike -- were closed for more than two hours as authorities investigated. Drivers heading south on Route 202 also experienced delays.
