Lorraine Ferguson, 47, was hit by, and her head crushed, during the accident at the intersection of East 105th Street and Avenue K in Canarsie, according to the Daily News. Lorraine’s husband Michael Ferguson had driven her to a city bus stop so she wouldn’t have to wait outside in the bitter cold for it.

When she saw her B103 Express bus to Midtown Manhattan coming, Lorraine started crossing the street to get on-board, the News and Post reported. But at that time, a small charter bus was making a turn and hit her, and she wound up crushed and dead beneath that bus.

Her husband claims that the charter bus ran a stop sign and hit his wife, the News reported. Ferguson was so diatraught that he broke down and collapsed at the scene.

The charter bus had two handicapped children as passengers, and neither one was hurt in the accident.
