A tipster said a friend was coming out of the La Madeleine restaurant at the intersection and “heard a thump, like a vehicle hitting something.” The friend saw a bus stopped in the crosswalk and a woman about 15 feet ahead.

The friend and another person stayed with the woman until the police came.
