NORTH BROOKFIELD, Mass. (AP)- The driver of a small bus has died after being struck by her own vehicle.
Authorities say 46-year-old Nancy Woods of Rutland was helping her lone passenger disembark from the rear of the small bus in North Brookfield at about 3 p.m. Wednesday when the vehicle started to roll forward.
Witnesses told investigators that Woods ran to the driver's side door and reached inside, but the Worcester Regional Transit Authority bus struck her and continued until it hit a building.
Woods was taken to the hospital where she was pronounced dead.
The 45-year-old passenger remained in the vehicle and sustained minor injuries.
The investigation is ongoing.
