6-year-old hit by school bus in Christian County
TOVEY, Ill. (WICS) —
A six-year-old is recovering tonight as the child was hit by a bus early Monday morning.
It is encouraged to make sure that parents and guardians stay with their child or children until they board the bus.
"I know things are hectic and other things are going on and other children might be in the family... but you've got to have caution to make sure the child gets on the bus safely," Christian County Sheriff Bruce Kettelkamp said.
Sheriff Kettelkamp also reminds parents to make sure their children stay a decent distance away from a bus until actually getting in it.
The child was taken to St. John’s Hospital as he did suffer injuries but none were life-threatening.
The incident is still currently under investigation and no citations have been issued to the bus driver.
