The driver reportedly claimed that no passengers told him that she had been run over and he presumed she had collapsed from illness when he saw her on the ground, adding that he heard a sound but thought it was the wing mirror hitting the bus sign.

The driver, name not disclosed, paid a BRL-5,000 (GBP 671) bond and was released with conditions, according to the news site G1.
