Woman Dies After Being Dragged By MBTA Bus, Revere Police Say

Police say a 52-year-old Revere woman has died after being struck and dragged about a half-mile by an MBTA bus.

A spokesman for the Suffolk district attorney's office says Gayle Johnson was struck around 7 p.m. Tuesday on Broadway and dragged six blocks.

The vehicle that struck her then left the scene.

Investigators determined that she had been struck by a bus and interviewed the 56-year-old male driver. He showed no signs of impairment, but has been subjected to drug and alcohol testing by the MBTA, per agency policy.

The investigation remains active and police are trying to determine how fast the bus was moving. The driver has not been charged.
