CHICAGO (AP) - Police say they’ve cited the driver of a Chicago Transit Authority bus who they say ran a red light before a Michigan Avenue crash that left one person dead and at least eight others injured.

Chicago police said early Wednesday that the 48-year-old driver was issued two traffic citations for the Tuesday crash in downtown Chicago. One citation was for failing to stop at a red light, and the other was for “failure to exercise due care.”

Authorities say the bus struck 51-year-old Aimee Coath of Flossmoor who died after being taken to a nearby hospital. Another person was critically hurt. The driver suffered minor injuries.

Police say the bus initially stopped at the red light but then went through it, striking the pedestrians and other vehicles.
