A 45-year-old woman has died after a bus she had disembarked struck her while reversing, Queensland police say.
Police say it's believed the bus driver was unaware he struck the woman while reversing in the driveway of her home at Beerwah on the Sunshine Coast around midnight (AEST) yesterday.
"Initial inquiries suggest the bus dropped her near her driveway and reversed back to do a u-turn when she was struck,'' police said.
"The driver and other occupants of the bus felt a slight bump but believed it was the edge of the driveway.''
A man found the woman about 30 minutes later dead.
The driver of the bus is assisting police with their investigation.
