FRUITLAND, Md. - An update on that fatal bus collision involving a pedestrian in Fruitland We have now learned that the woman who was stuck and killed was a regular passenger on that bus, and several others onboard, witnessed the whole ordeal.

It happened Thursday afternoon at the intersection of Cedar and North Dulany Avenues. The victim's name has not yet been released, but we do know the driver of the bus has not been charged.
