Photograph caption dated April 22, 1987 reads, "Not far from a sign admonishing pedestrians to look both ways, a police diagram marks the spot where Steven Pritchard, 28, fell to the pavement yesterday after he was struck by an RTD bus on Spring Street near Seventh Street. Police investigators determined that the victim was crossing Spring on foot against the "Don't Walk" sign and evidently did not see the bus. He died about an hour after the lunch-hour accident. The bus driver was not charged."
