The investigation surrounding the death of bus driver Laquita Alvin has expanded with Miami-Dade Mayor Carlos Gimenez instructing police to examine not only how she died but also determine who may have tampered with a safety device on her bus that could have saved her life.
Laquita Alvin’s daughter, Terrinisha, could barely hold back her tears or her anger after learning that her mother’s death could have been prevented if the county had properly maintained a warning system on Alvin’s bus.
On December 5, at approximately 4:30 pm, Miami-Dade County Transit driver Laquito Alvin steered her bus into the Northside Depot on 79th Street and Northwest 32nd Avenue. It was the end of her route, which had taken her from the Northside Depot to Mercy Hospital and back, and she would have just a few minutes to go to the bathroom before starting the circuit all over again.
