A woman is dead after being hit by a school bus on the Upper East Side.

It happened at the corner of Second Avenue and 93rd Street.

Police say the woman—who was in her forties—was hit while in the crosswalk, but she may have been crossing against the light.

The area is congested because of Second Avenue Subway construction.

Residents say you always need to be on alert.

"When I just came up here I almost had an accident crossing because I didn't realize it was a construction site and stuff. It was so complicated at first until I got used to it," said one person in the area.

"You just have to look where you're going. That's all it is. Accidents happen right? You have to look where you're going, be aware. It's Manhattan—there's cars going all over the place and uh, tragedy happens, you know? It's sad," said another.

The bus was carrying six children ages 5 to 11 at the time of the accident.

None of them were injured.

Officials say the bus driver remained on the scene and has not been charged.
