You've got to be kidding me. Television news stories had this at this as their top story last night and this morning. It's been 17+ hours since this happened -- and the Post can't do any better than this "story"? Are there no longer reporters at the Post???

The van was an airport shuttle going about 10 MPH. The woman ran in front of the van and was caught under the wheel. There is no justification for screaming "death to the driver." It was a terrible accident, nothing more.
