A 50-year-old cancer researcher was hit and killed by a shuttle bus near Mission Hill during the morning commute yesterday.

Simin Arad, of Boston, was walking near Huntington Avenue and Ruggles Street just before 9 a.m. when she was hit by the Longwood Medical Area bus. She was rushed to Brigham & Women’s Hospital where she later died.

The driver of the bus was also taken to the hospital. The bus company, Paul Revere Transportation, released a statement that said it was cooperating with the investigation.

Arad was a breast cancer researcher for both Dana Farber Cancer Institute and Brigham and Women’s, her son, Yashar Farahvash, 27, told the Globe.

Witnesses said the bus had a green light when the accident occurred.
