Robert "Casey" Keeler

February 4, 2009, Robert "Casey" Keeler was struck by an MTD bus at the corner of Figueroa and DeLaVina streets in Santa Barbara. The deceased 67-year-old victim, who suffered severe injuries after being hit by an MTD #1 line bus just about 4PM on Monday, died at Santa Barbara Cottage Hospital about seven hours after the crash.  The crash had left him trapped under the bus until paramedics arrived, extricated him and transported him to Cottage Hospital.  The Santa Barbara Police Department has declined to comment on the man's exact injuries but a spokesman called them "pretty severe."
