Teen hurt falling from moving TARTA bus

A teenager was hurt Thursday when she fell out of the rear side door of a TARTA bus as it rounded a curve at Brown Avenue and North Fearing Boulevard, police said.

Asia McKinney of the 1500 block of Avondale Avenue was treated in Toledo Hospital.

Young McKinney was standing in the rear stairwell area about 3:25 p.m. when the bus rounded the curve, and she was pushed against the door. The door opened, and she fell out onto the pavement, police said.

James Gee, TARTA general manager, said his agency is investigating the incident.
