A fatal accident killed a woman at the intersection of SW 128th Street and Ambaum Blvd. SW (map below) just before 3 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 21.

Police say that a van – driven by the female victim – was northbound on Ambaum when a westbound tow truck made a right turn in front of her.

The two vehicles collided and the van was forced into the southbound lanes, where a Metro bus and the van collided.

The female van driver – who had the right of way – was killed. Her identity has not yet been released.

Police add that there was no evidence of alcohol or drugs.

The intersection – near St. Bernadette Parish & School, where kids were playing soccer at the time – was closed for several hours for the investigation.

No other injuries were reported.
