STARR, SC (FOX Carolina) -

The husband of an Upstate woman who was hit and killed by a car at a school bus stop in 2017 has filed a lawsuit against the school district and the bus driver.

In November 2017, troopers said 46-year-old Kerry Mullins was dropping her daughter off at a school bus stop on First Avenue and, while talking with the bus driver, she was hit by an oncoming car. Troopers said dense fog contributed to the accident.

A neighbor tried to help Mullins but was too late.

The lawsuit filed Tuesday claims the bus driver opened the school bus door without activating the stop-arm or flashing light system. It also alleges that the bus driver called Mullins over to talk in the "Danger Zone" perimeter around the school bus against regulation.

Her husband is suing Anderson School District 3 and the bus driver for negligence.

According to court records, earlier in May a settlement was reached with the driver of the car that hit Mullins.
