article-indiana-0126CNN – An Indiana principal reportedly pushed students out of the way of an oncoming bus before she herself was struck Tuesday.

Susan Jordan died at the scene after a school bus jumped a curb, killing her and injuring two children.

The bus driver told firefighters that she’s not sure why the bus jumped the curb, but that she saw Jordan push several students out of the way, according to Rita Reith with the Indianapolis Fire Department.

“What we were told, by the bus driver, in the instant that the accident occurred, she saw the principal push kids out of the way of the bus, before it hit her and killed her. She was a beloved principal at that school for 20 years, getting them loaded on the bus,” Reith told CNN.

“They just loved her,” she said. “Up to the minute she was alive, she was helping the kids.”
