Two pedestrians were killed and three others injured by a city bus in Portland on Saturday night. The group was walking to a comedy club when the bus, which was not in service, hit them while turning onto NW Broadway Boulevard. Two women were killed, one man was rushed to the hospital in critical condition, and two others - a man and a woman - suffered only minor injuries. The cause of the crash is under investigation, but police say that speed does not appear to be a factor in the accident. The driver of the bus has not been arrested.
