HARRISONBURG, Va. (AP) — Police are investigating a fatal bus crash involving a pedestrian on the James Madison University campus.

State Police say a female student was walking when she was struck by a city of Harrisonburg transportation bus at 9:52 p.m. Tuesday. The student died at the scene.

Officials on Wednesday identified the students as 18-year-old Jane Hwang of Fairfax.

State Police Sgt. Frank Ingham says the bus was going through a green light and making a left turn when the accident occurred. The pedestrian was wearing dark-colored clothing.

State Police say the 56-year-old female bus driver will not face charges. The main factor was determined as inattention on the part of the pedestrian.
