According to the Columbia Police Department and the City of Columbia website,  at approximately 8:05 a.m. on Monday March 07, David C. Birkenbach, 66, was struck by a city bus while he was using a crosswalk, on Stadium Boulevard at Monk Drive.

The details of those reports state that Mr. Birkenbach of Columbia, was walking across Stadium Boulevard using the crosswalk, legally. A city bus driven by Hamis Mukiwa, 22, attempted to turn left from Champions Drive onto Stadium. According to Columbia Police Department spokesperson Bryana Larimer, ” the bus had a yellow left-turn signal, indicating it could complete the turn after yielding to traffic and pedestrians, and Birkenbach was legally within the crosswalk.” Larimer also said, “Mukiwa did not yield to Birkenbach while completing the turn, which led to the fatal crash.” Larimer also stated that alcohol and drugs were not a factor in the crash.
