Last year, Metro agreed to pay a $2.9 million to the family of Sally D. McGhee, 54, and $2.3 million to the family of Martha Schoenborn, 59, to settle lawsuits filed after the two women were run over and killed by a Metrobus.

The women, who worked together at the Federal Trade Commission, had just left work and had a “walk” signal as they crossed Pennsylvania Avenue but the Metrobus came around the corner and struck them.
