Police are investigating after a woman was killed Tuesday after being hit by a school bus in Lower Manhattan.
It happened around 4:30 p.m. at Delancey and Ludlow Streets on the Lower East Side.
A witness says the woman was riding her bicycle on Delancey when she hit a pothole and fell behind the bus, which then backed over her.
"She was just trying to get away from the school bus and the school bus just kept driving, and it was getting closer and closer to her. And everybody's screaming at him, 'There's somebody behind you!' And she was trying to avoid the pothole, but once she hit the pothole, that's when she fell over," said one witness.
Police say there is no criminality at this time.
The Department of Education says two sisters were on the bus at the time of the accident and were later picked up by their parents.
