Pedestrian struck by flying bus mirror

A pedestrian was injured Friday night in a freak accident at the corner of East Fourth and Race streets Lexington when the mirror on a LexTran bus clipped a telephone pole guide wire.

The mirror was pulled off the bus and struck Jessica Mays, standing on the sidewalk.

Mays' injuries were not serious, but she was taken to Samaritan Hospital for observation.
