Police Identify Woman Killed by Bus at Mohegan Sun

UNCASVILLE, Conn. (AP) — State police say a 62-year-old New York City woman was the person struck and killed by a bus at the Mohegan Sun casino in eastern Connecticut.

Troopers identified the woman Thursday as Pui Ying Li of the Elmhurst section of Queens. Authorities say she was trying to cross a street in front of the Mohegan Tribal Public Safety Building near a parking garage Wednesday afternoon when she was hit by a commercial bus owned by the Tribal Sun Bus Co.

Police say Li suffered traumatic facial and head injuries. She died at Backus Hospital in Norwich.

Officials identified the bus driver as 38-year-old Lin Qi Si of Braintree, Mass.

State police haven’t filed charges.

Mohegan Sun issued a statement saying it is “deeply saddened” and is helping with the investigation.
