WASHINGTON - The victim of a fatal bus crash on the James Madison University campus has been identified as a graduate of W.T. Woodson High School in Fairfax.
Jane Hwang, 18, who had just entered her freshman year at the Harrisonburg school, was walking about 10 p.m. Tuesday night when she was hit by a city of Harrisonburg bus, Virginia State Police say.
Hwang died at the scene.
State Police say the bus was going through a green light and making a left turn. Hwang was wearing dark-colored clothing.
State Police say the 56-year-old female bus driver will not face charges. The main factor was determined as inattention on the part of the pedestrian.
Hwang was crossing despite a "Do Not Walk" sign, police say.
A Facebook memorial page set up in Hwang's memory states she "was and always will be a great Little, amazing Dancer, and most of all a wonderful Friend."
By Wednesday morning, the page was filled with messages from friends.
The accident remains under investigation.
