INDIANAPOLIS - A woman struck by a school bus at the Geist Half Marathon last weekend has died of her injuries, her family confirmed in a post online.
On Friday night, the family of 34-year-old Erin Harris, of Fishers, released a statement through a GoFundMe site created after the crash.
"We are devastated to tell you that Erin has passed away at Methodist Hospital this evening. She is with the Lord and while we are all deeply saddened we take comfort knowing that she is home," the post reads. "Thank you for all your support and prayers during this most difficult time. The amount of love and support has blessed us more than you know. We are so grateful that our family has been able to spend precious time with her and say our goodbyes.
Organizers of the Geist Half Marathon also offered their condolences in a post on Saturday.
"The Geist Half Marathon board offers our deepest condolences and sympathies to the family and loved ones of Erin Harris who passed away last night from injuries suffered in a traffic accident prior to the Geist Half Marathon last Saturday morning," the post reads. "Our thoughts and prayers are with them during this time of sorrow."
Harris was struck by a bus near the intersection of 116th Street and Olio Road while heading to the starting line of the race.
The driver of the bus, 69-year-old David McCollum, was not injured. Police said they do not believe drugs or alcohol were a factor in the crash.
