GSPIA prof hit by bus recovering

Graduate School of Public and International Affairs professor Sabina Deitrick, who was struck by a Port Authority bus Feb. 27, plans to return to the classroom after next week’s spring break, a GSPIA spokesperson said.

Her Wednesday evening economic development strategies and practices class was canceled this week.

Deitrick, who also co-directs the University Center for Social and Urban Research and Pitt’s Community Outreach Partnership Center, was hit by a 54C traveling in the bus lane on Fifth Avenue near the William Pitt Union. She was taken to UPMC Presbyterian, but since has been released, the spokesperson reported.

Port Authority spokesperson David Whipkey said the driver, Daryl Glaze, honked and tried to swerve, but could not avoid hitting Deitrick. Per company policy, Glaze was held off from work with pay, but was expected to return to work this week, Whipkey said.
