City bus strikes, kills cyclist; investigation continues

Boston police say a woman in her late 20s died after she was hit by an MBTA bus.

A police spokesman said the accident happened around 10:30 p.m. Friday. He said no citations have been issued and the investigation into what caused the accident is ongoing.

An MBTA spokesman said investigators are initially focusing on an MBTA bus that was in the area where the bicyclist was found on Huntington Avenue after falling from her bike into traffic.

He said details of the accident remain undetermined and forensic experts are investigating.

The name of the woman has not been released.


Man returns to home state after climbing Mount Everest

A Nottingham man is back in New Hampshire after climbing to the summit of Mount Everest.

Joe Pratt told WMUR-TV that anyone who climbs the 29,000-foot Everest and survives is lucky. He said the hardest part of the venture was coming down after reaching the summit.

Recent news of several climbers not making it back down only made matters worse, according to Pratt. In one weekend, four people died. A traffic jam of hikers was blamed as a factor in their deaths.

Pratt, who returned last week, said he came face-to-face with climbers virtually stuck on Mount Everest, with their bodies frozen solid.
