That scenario was given by the bus driver, however, and should be considered "preliminary," Brooks told us.
It happened about 1:50 p.m. Saturday in the 25000 block of Pacific Coast Highway, he said.
She was killed "instantly," the sergeant said.
She might have been training for the Ironman, he added.
The investigation was ongoing. The woman's ID was withheld while family was notified.
