NEW YORK DAILY NEWS – A 70-year-old woman was “cut in half” on a Brooklyn street as she was struck by an out-of-service city bus that continued on its way without stopping early Tuesday, officials and horrified witnesses said.

The doomed woman — who was clinging to a wheeled walker and may have been homeless — was crossing Fulton St. at Sackman St. in Ocean Hill about 6:15 a.m. when the bus ran her over.

“She was cut in half…definitely in half,” Ramon Garcia told the News. “I tried to help her but she was too bloody. There was a lot of blood.”

The bus, which was turning from Sackman St. onto Fulton St. drove off, a stunned Garcia said.

“(The bus driver) never stopped, he just kept on going,” Garcia said. “He never realized what had happened. It’s a big machine. I guess you don’t feel something like that.”

  1. Sad!! But that's a very dangerous and busy intersection. Sackman is such a narrow street that buses have to go wide to turn. RIP my lady. Horrible way to go. Driver probably never realised or felt a thing. Heart breaking
