HYDER, Ariz. — A 10-year-old boy is recovering after being struck while
trying to catch his school bus.
Yuma County sheriff’s deputies say the boy was running along the bus Wednesday
morning as it pulled away from the bus stop in the community of Hyder. The
driver didn’t see the boy and the bus inadvertently ran him over.
Deputies say the boy’s brother saw him on the road, picked him up and took him
home. A grandparent then took the boy to Dateland Elementary School, knowing
there was a paramedic stationed there.
The boy was then flown to a Phoenix hospital, where he was listed in stable
condition Wednesday afternoon.
Deputies say the incident has been ruled an accident. No citations will be
