Student's Condition Improving After Being Hit By Bus
Twenty one year old Natasha Schoultz' condition has been upgraded from critical to serious, following a gruesome accident early Tuesday morning.
After a concert near the 200 block of University Avenue Schoultz walked in front of a RTS bus and was hit head on.
Gainesville's Police Department is still investigating what happened, but they have cleared the bus driver, 26 year old Eddie Bishop of reckless driving and of alcohol.
Investigators are still looking into what may have distracted Natasha, who was actually interning with RTS in their marketing and communications department.
This is the second time in four months that a student has been hit by a RTS bus.
Bishop and Schoultz did know each other and the bus driver is on paid leave pending the outcome of the investigation.
Each summer every single RTS bus driver has to undergo extended training to make sure they are prepared for situations like crowded roadways and aggressive drivers.
