    Camden Metro police tell NBC10 the victim was walking across Broadway just before 1 Sunday afternoon, trying to hail the northbound bus when she was hit.

    "It looked like the bus was going really fast, like they couldn't get away that quick. They couldn't move away from the bus as it was coming toward them that fast. So the one woman ended up getting hit," said Michael Scott, who witnessed the accident.

    Family members say she was going to take that bus to her sister's church in the city.

    "My mom always put God first. Put her tithes first. Then she blessed others with what she had, even when she didn't have much," said Rollins.

    Camden Metro police are conducting an investigation, as well as NJ Transit.

    No one aboard the bus was hurt.
