An Indianapolis elementary principal who was fatally struck by a school bus had managed to push as many as 10 children to safety, estimated a teacher who witnessed the incident.

Debbie Thie said she was standing on a sidewalk outside the school in front of a line of buses. As students filed out, she saw a bus, which had a driver aboard, heave forward toward the children. Two 10-year-old students were injured, and Principal Susan Jordan was killed in what authorities believe was an accident.

Jordan had been principal at Amy Beverland Elementary School for 22 years.
