Chinatown man struck, killed by bus

I'm almost surprised this doesn't happen more often: a Chinatown man is hit and killed by a NY-DC bus at the intersection of East Broadway and Pike. I live not a few blocks from where the accident happend and it's simply inevitable.

There's a lot of pedestrian traffic because of the food shops on East Broadway and with several Chinatown bus lines terminating couple of blocks away, it's really a bad combination. Pedestrians are, well, typical New York pedestrians and the drivers, especially but not just the ones on the huge buses, aren't quite careful enough.

You'd hope that this accident will change things but unfortunately, this accident isn't the first and surely won't be the last.
