Rochester police continued to investigate the death of a 23-year-old Rochester woman, was who struck by a city bus Tuesday near downtown Rochester.

Capt. Brian Winters said investigators are looking at cameras on the bus that might contain video to help them resolve the status of the traffic signal light.

Police have conflicting statements from witnesses about whether the light was red or yellow at the time of the accident.

Amanda Suzanne Carlson was in-line skating and was crossing South Broadway from east to west at Ninth Street when she was hit by a Rochester City Lines bus driven by John Huston, 21, of Rochester.


In an unrelated fatal accident, police will soon submit police reports to a prosecutor to determine whether there are grounds to file criminal charges in the death of Arianna Macnamara, 7, of Rochester, who was hit by a car June 16 while riding her bicycle.
