Downtown Palo Alto Intersection Closed for Police Investigation

Police are taking measurements for a case involving a deadly accident.

Palo Alto police closed the downtown intersection of University Avenue and Webster Street for an investigation this morning.

Starting at 10 a.m. investigators are taking measurements at the intersection, police said. The measurements will be used as evidence in a court case related to a fatal collision that occurred there on Dec. 30, 2010, Lt. Zach Perron said.

On that day, a woman was struck by a San Mateo County Transit District bus traveling south on Webster Street.

The woman, later identified as Sheena Marie Barker, 52, of Cupertino, was pronounced dead at the scene.

Police said after the accident that Barker was a traveling nurse who worked at various hospitals in the area.

The area should reopen momentarily.
