KEARNS — A woman died after being hit by a school bus early Thursday morning.

Police identified the victim as Becky Bell, 37, of Kearns.

The accident occurred near 5240 W. 5400 South around 7 a.m., according to Unified police. Bell was attempting to cross the street when she was hit by a school bus that was carrying two children. One of the children onboard was in a wheelchair and the children were both transferred to another bus after the accident.

Bell lives about a block away from the scene of the accident and may have been trying to catch a UTA bus, police said.

East and westbound lanes were temporarily closed in the area and Unified police diverted traffic during the investigation.

Editor's note: Police initially said the woman was 38 years old, when she is actually 37. This story has been updated.
