SOUTH BRUNSWICK, NJ - Middlesex County Prosecutor Andrew C. Carey and Chief Raymond Hayducka of the South Brunswick Police Department announced that the death of a 68-year old South Brunswick school bus aide was unrelated to an incident that occurred earlier that day.

The South Brunswick woman, who was a school bus aide for the South Brunswick School District, died on Wednesday, Aug. 1.

An investigation by Detective Brady Shelcusky of the South Brunswick Police Department and Detective David Abromaitis of the Middlesex County Prosecutor’s Office determined that on Aug. 1 the bus aide physically redirected a youth on the bus back to his seat. Approximately one hour later, the woman felt ill, was taken to a local hospital and died later that evening.

It was further determined that the incident that occurred on the school bus did not cause her death. The Middlesex County Medical Examiner’s Office determined the woman died from natural causes.
