It was a traffic accident in Buffalo, New York. Cynthia Wiggins, a young black woman, was hit by a truck as she tried to cross a busy highway on her way to a suburban mall. She never regained consciousness and died from her injuries, leaving an infant son behind.But, as Ted Koppel pointed out when he first reported this story, why she died and why she was on that highway to begin with divided the community along racial lines. The black community labeled the incident racist because the upscale mall had banned inner-city busses.The case wound up in court, as many accidents do. Some in the community feared that the trial would be divisive, others worried that the racial issues were never fully recognized in the first place. But after opening arguments and a handful of witnesses, the parties agreed to settle. Airdate: 11/22/99
