Pedestrian Signals To Go Up At Site Of Deadly Bus Accident

Posted November 30, 2004 8:03 a.m. EST

— The city of Durham plans to install pedestrian crossing signals at the intersection where a city bus killed a woman.

In September, a DATA bus hit Katie McClary as she crossed Broad Street at Markham Avenue.

Durham police has charged bus driver Johnnie Chavis with involuntary manslaughter.

There were no crossing signals at the intersection. The new ones should be up within a few months.

A previous version of this story incorrectly stated the driver's name as Johnnie Davis.
