A preliminary hearing for a Pittsburgh Public Schools bus driver facing hit-and-run charges has been postponed because the victim has died.

The Allegheny County district attorney says autopsy results on Alberta Slaczka will determine whether authorities file more charges against 71-year-old Ernest Brevard, of Wilkins Township.

The 67-year-old woman was hit May 1 while crossing the street near a parochial school in Forest Hills, where Brevard had just dropped off some students. She died at a Pittsburgh hospital on Wednesday.

Brevard has told county detectives that he didn't realize he hit the woman.

Brevard's attorney, Blaine Jones, says "Our heart goes out to the family."
