The elderly woman hit by a Metro Transit Authority bus Friday has died.
Nancy Farmer, 72, died Wednesday at 11:55 a.m. at Vanderbilt University Medical Center, according to a spokeswoman for the hospital. An MTA bus hit Farmer, of Seventh Avenue North, around 11 a.m. Friday as she crossed Charlotte Avenue in front of the Music City Center site.
Bus driver Bruce Hogan, 56, of Hermitage, was turning right off Fourth Avenue North onto Charlotte when the bus hit Farmer. She was in a crosswalk.
Last week Metro police said the preliminary investigation showed Hogan failed to yield to Farmer.
Police said the investigation into the crash in ongoing. Once it's completed, it will be given to the district attorney's office to determine whether charges will be filed.
An MTA spokesperson said Hogan was placed on leave pending the outcome of the investigation.
