BLOOMINGTON, Ind. — The Bloomington Police Department (BPD) is investigating a deadly crash involving a pedestrian and a bus on Thursday.

Police said on September 26 around 11:44 a.m., police and first responders were called to Walnut Street just south of the intersection of 3rd Street, for a crash involving a female pedestrian and a Bloomington Transit bus.

According to BPD, the pedestrian was determined to be deceased by emergency responders upon arrival.

Police said the bus had just left from the downtown Bloomington Transit terminal.

BPD crash reconstructionists are currently investigating the crash, and investigators are trying to determine if nearby cameras or mounted cameras on the bus recorded any video of the incident.

Police said no foul play suspected and Walnut Street has since reopened to traffic.

On Oct. 2, the victim was identified as Margaret Miao-Keong, 66, of Bloomington. The coroner’s office says they aren’t aware of any living relatives, and ask anyone with further information to call 812-349-3222.

An autopsy revealed the preliminary cause of death as blunt force trauma, and the preliminary manner of death is an accident.
