NEW YORK (AP) - Police say an MTA bus driver has been arrested in a fatal hit-and-run accident involving a 70-year-old woman in Brooklyn.

The accident happened at 6:15 a.m. Tuesday in the Ocean Hill section.

Police say Carol Bell, of Brooklyn, was struck by a bus making a right turn as she tried to cross the street. They say the bus kept going. She was pronounced dead at the scene.
