LAS VEGAS (AP) — Police have identified the 65-year-old woman who was struck and killed by a school bus in central Las Vegas this week.

Nita Livingston of Las Vegas was declared dead at the scene of Thursday’s crash at about 3:45 p.m. on Warnock and Desert Inn roads, police said Friday.

The bus was idling at a stop sign when Livingston began crossing Warnock in an unmarked area, police said.

The bus driver then started to turn toward Desert Inn, knocking Livingston to the ground before she was run over. The 58-year-old bus driver, whose name hasn’t been released, called 911, police said.

It’s not clear how many children were on the bus at the time of the crash, but none was hurt, police said.

The cause of the crash remains under investigation.
