Police: Girl, 9, Hit and Killed by School Bus in Maryland

Posted: Updated:

BETHESDA, Md. (AP)- A fourth -grader who was hit by a school bus in Maryland has died.           

The girl, 9, got off the bus Thursday afternoon with a group of students when she was struck by the vehicle, police in Montgomery County said in a release. News outlets report the bus was making a right turn when it hit the girl in a residential area of Bethesda.           

The girl was taken to a hospital where she was pronounced dead Thursday night.           

Her name was not immediately released, but school officials say she was a student at Bradley Hills Elementary School. Counselors were expected to be available at the school Friday, principal Karen Caroscio said in a letter to parents, WTTG-TV reported.           

The other students and the bus driver were not injured, police said. It's unclear whether the bus driver will face charges.

           

               Earlier this week, authorities said a 4-year-old girl in Glen Arm, Maryland, was briefly dragged by a school bus after her backpack got caught in its door. That child was hospitalized with injuries that were not considered life-threatening.
