Quotes from the story:

"The driver behind the wheel in Northgate says he didn't see 94-year-old Jacqueline Morrison in a marked crosswalk when he turned left. Morrison was fatally struck by the bus."

"Attorney Chris Davis represented Morrison's family in their claim against Metro."

"All bus models have somewhat of a blind spot, but the Orion is larger," Davis says.

"I think because of a lot of money invested in those models," says Davis, "I think we're talking about the county not wanting to do something that would force them to remove those models from our streets."
