A woman was fatally run over after exiting an MTA bus in Brooklyn on Thursday morning.

The NYPD confirmed that a woman was fatally struck by a B41 driver on Thursday morning. Police responded to a 911 call around 9 a.m. about a motor vehicle collision at Flatlands Avenue and Flatbush Avenue in the Flatlands neighborhood. They found a woman with trauma to the head, and EMS pronounced her dead at the scene.

It's believed she was a passenger on the bus, and one NYPD source said the preliminary investigation suggests that she managed to open the doors and exit the bus while it was still in motion.

At the scene, the Daily News reports that NYPD Chief Charles Scholl said, "It appears it is no fault of the operator of the city bus. It’s another tragedy of people not being careful and putting themselves in harm’s way. It’s another tragic loss of life but it’s definitely something that could’ve been avoided."

The MTA said the fatal incident is under investigation.

"The death of a woman who was struck by bus #4236 operating on the B41 route this morning is tragic," Craig Cipriano, Senior Vice President Department of Buses and Acting President of MTA Bus Company, said in a statement. "NYC Transit and NYPD investigations into what happened, how, and why, are in the early stages, so any conclusions as to cause would be inappropriately speculative at this time."

We'll update as more information becomes available.
