Responding to a 911 call reporting a motor vehicle collision, officers arrived to Alphabet city at the intersection of Avenue D and East 10th Street just after 10:30 p.m. According to the NYPD, 45-year-old Shawn Gooding was situated at the southwest corner of the intersection when he stumbled and fell into the roadway near the designated crosswalk.

Reportedly, an MTA bus traveling along East 10th Street had the right of way with a green light and proceeded to execute a right turn onto Avenue D, inadvertently colliding with Gooding at the rear of the bus.
