A 57-year-old San Marino mother was killed after being hit by a car while she was dropping off a student for their first year at the University of Virginia.

The crash happened before 1 p.m. Sunday when a driver was making a left turn on a street in a shopping center near the campus. The driver hit Bonnie Baha, her husband and their daughter.

Baha's husband and daughter were taken by ambulance to a hospital for non-life-threatening injuries, but Baha succumbed to her injuries at the medical center.

Baha, head of global developed credit at Los Angeles-based DoubleLine Capital LP, was a founding partner of DoubleLine. She was well-known in the financial world, appearing on CNBC and Bloomberg. She also wrote a column for Forbes magazine, and was often quoted in the Wall Street Journal and the New York Times.

The company says she helped make it one of the fastest growing asset management firms in the united States and was regarded as one of the best corporate credit analysts in the country.

"For a quarter century Bonnie was my trusted colleague and dear friend. She was honest and direct, with a sardonic wit perfectly matching her investment skepticism helping shape the DoubleLine philosophy," DoubleLine CEO Jeffrey Gundlach said in a statement. "DoubleLine mourns with all who knew and loved Bonnie, especially her family, yet can be grateful that a part of her legacy will be the deep and talented investment team she built and mentored."

Authorities said no charges have been filed and that the crash remains under investigation.
