Sad news about the infant born to the mother stuck under bus
The infant boy delivered prematurely after his traffic agent mother was struck by a van and pinned under a bus has died. His mother, a traffic agent, survived the delivery but died about an hour later in an emergency operating room. She was seven months pregnant.

The van, driven by a 72-year-old man with what authorities say is a long history of driving offenses, hit the mother when she was crossing a Bronx street on her lunch break. The impact sent her flying into the path of a yellow school bus, which ran her over. About 30 bystanders helped hoist the 5-ton bus from her body in a rescue that made the front pages of the city's tabloid newspapers.
