The Akron Beacon Journal newspaper reports the Hinckley woman died at a hospital Tuesday after being hit near a dark intersection at about 7 a.m.
Police Chief Tim Kalavsky says the woman's two oldest children and four other middle school students were on the Brunswick City Schools bus while her youngest child was at home. He's unsure why she was directing the bus but says it appears the driver headed down a street with nowhere to turn around.
The newspaper reports the woman's husband died in August.
Brunswick Superintendent Michael Mayell says counselors have been made available at all district schools.
