Unidentified woman crushed by bus in Brooklyn had a crack pipe in her bra

The woman — who is said to be Hispanic and in her 50s — was killed when she was run over by a bus while trying to retrieve a cellphone she dropped. No criminal charges have been filed against driver James Maxwell, who said he did not see her before moving the vehicle.

The woman who was crushed to death while trying to retrieve her dropped cell phone from under a bus in Brooklyn had a crack pipe in her bra, police sources said Thursday.

She had just stepped off the B44 bus about 1:30 p.m. Wednesday in Bedford-Stuyvesant when she fumbled the phone. Just as she went to retrieve it, the bus pulled away from the curb, trapping her under the right rear wheels.

The woman, who appeared to be Hispanic and in her 50s, wasn’t carrying any identification and cops said the phone was too damaged to provide any information.

But cops are hoping several distinctive tattoos will lead them to her identity, police sources said.
