The 65-year-old woman was run over by the rear wheels of a commuter bus in New Milford early Thursday.
Authorities say she had just stepped off a sidewalk along Center Street and Boulevard when she fell under the back wheels of a Coach bus around 6:45 a.m.
The woman was crossing the street to get to her home.
She was rushed to Hackensack University Medical Center, where she was pronounced dead.
No criminality is suspected, but the investigation is ongoing.
The woman has not been identified.
