PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) - A Coventry woman who tripped and fell beneath a bus in Providence in May has died.

Bobbie Moore died Monday. She tripped and became trapped beneath the bus May 20 as it pulled away from the bus stop.

A RIPTA spokeswoman had said surveillance video from the bus showed that Moore tripped and fell as she approached the bus.

The driver was put on paid leave, which is standard practice.

RIPTA says riders should not approach, chase or try to flag down a moving bus.
