Charges filed in case of girl hit by vehicle while exiting school bus near Whitefish

KALISPELL — A woman has formally been charged in connection with hitting and severely injuring a child as she was getting off a school bus near Whitefish.

Flathead County Attorney Travis Ahner tells MTN News that they have officially charged Patricia Berliner, whose vehicle hit 6-year-old Jordana Hubble on November 12, 2019.

Berliner — who is not currently in custody — is being charged with one count of felony criminal endangerment.

Court documents state that “the defendant knowingly engaged in conduct that creates a substantial risk of death or serious bodily injury to others, namely Jordana Hubble.”

The charge filed carries a maximum term in the Montana State Prison of 10 years as well as a maximum fine of $50,000.

According to witness statements, Berliner stated she did not think she had to stop since the bus was in the other lane.

Court documents state that Jordana “was reportedly thrown approximately 60 feet from the point of impact to where she came to rest in the ditch.”

The Montana Highway Patrol previously told MTN News the driver — now identified as Berliner — failed to stop for the bus when it had its flashing lights and stop sign up on US Highway 93 North near mile marker 137.

Jordana was taken to Nexus Children’s Hospital in Houston back in January to continue her recovery from the injuries she sustained in the incident.

Multiple fundraisers were held throughout the Flathead Valley to raise money for Jordana’s medical expenses.

Covid-19 deals a long-term hit to New York City’s transportation system

Part of the problem: The MTA entered the coronavirus pandemic already saddled with financial challenges. When Cuomo signed off on the budget in January, the MTA still hadn’t finished $15 billion in projects from earlier capital plans.

“There is…carryover work from the 2015-19 capital program where the contracts have yet to be awarded,” said Penner, who led the Federal Transit Administration’s New York office for 31 years. “They are legally bound to award those contracts.”

When you add in the old projects and the new ones, the MTA’s capital plan is closer to $70 billion, said Andrew Rein of the Citizens Budget Commission.

These old projects take precedence over new plans, creating both headaches and confusion for city planners trying to set funding priorities.

Looming over everything is the debt the MTA holds.

The the transit administration pays a dollar in interest on its loans for every six dollars it takes in, said Danny Pearlstein of the Riders Alliance.

“They’re in a really fiscally significant challenging position,” Rein said. “They’re bleeding money on a daily basis.”

State Comptroller Thomas DiNapoli said the MTA’s outstanding debt is projected to approach $53 billion by 2023.

It also doesn’t help that the MTA depends heavily on the municipal bond market to finance its projects. Officials had hoped that $25 billion in bond sales would provide its largest funding source for the capital budget. But as yields rise sharply, experts fear investors will abandon these bonds, and the MTA won’t be able to pay its obligations.

“A big part of what happens to the capital plan is what happens to bond yields,” said Nicole Gelinas, a senior fellow with the Manhattan Institute. “Do they have to pay slightly higher interest rates to access the market, and does that mean they need to pay more for the capital improvement plan?”

The MTA’s revenue projections for the 2020-24 capital improvement plan also depend on its operating budget—fares, tolls, real estate taxes, sales taxes, and city and state subsidies. But those are affected by the widespread disruption caused by the coronavirus and the uncertain timeline for when the economy will return to normal.

“They’re counting on $3 billion in revenue, and it’s totally naive to believe this is going to happen,” Penner said.

MTA officials also counted on an additional $15 billion from Cuomo’s controversial congestion pricing legislation. The significant decline in New York City traffic since the outbreak of the coronavirus, with no clear indication of when typical traffic patterns will resume, present a clear threat to the project.

What’s more, the congestion pricing plan has yet to gain federal approval by the Department of Transportation, primarily because of the Trump administration’s concerns over the plan’s environmental impact.

“A lot of questions are up in the air,” said Gelinas, noting the future tax base of the city and the willingness of individuals and businesses to shoulder a novel congestion charge are unknowns.

When asked at a March 25 press conference which specific programs in the capital
