Woman hit and killed by bus in Bushwick

BROOKLYN - A Brooklyn woman was hit and killed by an MTA bus while crossing the street in Bushwick Friday night.

Robert Crespin, who witnessed the accident, rushed to Wu?s side and took off his sweater to keep her warm while they waited for the first responders to arrive.

Wu was taken to an area hospital, where she was pronounced dead. Police say the driver of the bus will not be charged in the accident.
