An unidentified boy was struck and injured by a school bus Thursday morning in east Durham.
A Durham police officer said the boy, who apparently suffered a leg or foot injury, was taken to a hospital but apparently was not seriously hurt, ABC11 reported.
The child’s identity was not known, but Durham Public Schools official William Sudderth told CBS North Carolina that he was 9 years old.
The accident happened about 8 a.m. at Juniper Street and North Hyde Park Avenue, ABC11 reported.
Durham school officials said the boy was not supposed to ride the bus that struck him, which serves Eastway Elementary School, but that he ran out in front of it.
An investigation is under way.
