BOCA RATON — A 94-year-old woman from Boca Raton died Wednesday afternoon after she was hit by a Palm Tran bus on Glades Road, the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office said.
Steffon Monroe, 57, of Lake Worth, was driving the bus north in the 9800 block of Glades Road, leaving the Publix plaza, the Sheriff’s Office said.
Shirley Goldberg was walking across Glades Road on the west side of the intersection in the crosswalk.
When the bus driver turned west onto Glades Road, Goldberg was hit in the crosswalk. She was taken to Delray Medical Center where she died from her injuries around 1:15 p.m., roughly an hour after the accident, according to the Sheriff’s Office.
Sheriff’s Office spokeswoman Teri Barbera said the crash is being investigated and that it is too soon to say whether any charges are being considered.
