A Swedish runway model was left brain dead after her bicycle was hit by a bus in Manhattan Oct. 8. The 29-year-old was not wearing a helmet.
According to police, the model was riding down Main Street on Roosevelt Island around 9:18 p.m. when she was knocked from her bike by a bus making a left turn. She suffered severe head trauma when she struck the pavement. The bus driver reportedly failed to yield, but he has not yet been charged.
