ATLANTA (AP) — A trial is expected to begin this week for an Atlanta bus driver accused of injuring a passenger who police say was dragged along a city street by the vehicle.
The passenger, 62-year-old Lettie Robinson, told police she got off the Metropolitan Atlanta Rapid Transit Authority bus on May 8, 2011, and reached inside the bus to retrieve her purse when the door closed on her arm.
A police report said Robinson was dragged 63 feet and sustained a broken arm and cuts to her head and legs.
Fulton County District Attorney Paul Howard said the trial of former bus driver Belinda McMillan is scheduled to begin Wednesday. McMillan is charged with serious injury by vehicle, aggravated battery, reckless driving and reckless conduct.
