A female pedestrian was struck and killed by a bus Sunday at Linwood Boulevard and Main Street.
Police said the incident occurred about 2:20 p.m. and involved a Kansas City Area Transportation Authority bus. Police said a witness reported the woman was running alongside the bus and pounding on it when she fell and was run over.
