November 08, 2018

LOUISVILLE, KY. – November 2, 2018 (fourstateshomepage.com) A driver in Louisville, Kentucky, struck and injured two boys who were crossing a street October 31 to board a school bus, according to an online news report from fourstateshomepage.com. The accident is one of a string of crashes between drivers and school children at bus stops in a matter of weeks.*

The Louisville crash occurred at approximately 6:30 a.m. on October 31. Two brothers, ages 11 and 13, were crossing a busy intersection to board a school bus, when they were struck by a vehicle. The driver kept going, and police are still looking for him or her and the vehicle. The extent of the children’s injuries is not clear at this time. 

The Kentucky joins a slew of collisions around the county involving vehicles hitting school children at bus stops. Two such accidents occurred on the morning of November 1, one in Pennsylvania and one in Florida. A 7-year-old boy was found dead at a bus stop on November 1 in Franklin Township, Pennsylvania, and had apparently been the victim of a hit-and-run. Police located someone they believed was the driver, but it is not yet clear what legal action will be taken. 

In Tampa, Florida, the same morning two adults and five children were struck by a vehicle while waiting at a bus stop. All seven people sustained injuries and were transported to a hospital. The driver stayed at the scene, and it is not clear what charges, if any, will be filed. 

Several days earlier, on October 25, a 10-year-old boy died and a 7-year-old boy was seriously injured when a car tried to pass a school bus and struck them in Moultrie, Georgia. The two boys were brothers and were trying to cross the street together to board the bus. The driver is facing numerous criminal charges, including vehicular homicide.
