Bystanders Beat Driver When He Stops

April 26, 1997|By Jonathan Bor | Jonathan Bor,SUN STAFF

A 19-year-old woman was crushed to death yesterday afternoon when she fell under a city bus she was trying to hail on an East Baltimore street.

When the driver got out to see what had happened, he was beaten unconscious people standing nearby.

Ka-ree Sayall was running after a bus that had just pulled away from a stop in the 2500 block of E. Fayette St. about 4: 30 p.m. when the accident occurred, according to police and Mass Transit Administration spokesmen. She apparently fell and was crushed by the wheels.

It was unclear how many people beat MTA driver Emilio Angelini, 53, when he stopped and got out of the bus to see what had happened. Police took several statements from witnesses but had not made any arrests last night.

Sayall of the 200 block of N. Rose St., around the corner from the bus stop where the accident occurred, was pronounced dead at Johns Hopkins Hospital. Angelini, 53, was taken to Hopkins with scrapes and bruises on his head and nose. He was listed in good condition last night.
