Shreveport students hit by car after getting off school bus

SHREVEPORT, La. (KNOE) - Louisiana authorities say two children were hit by a car and injured after they got off their school bus.

Caddo Parish schools spokeswoman Mary Wood said that one suffered a broken leg and the other minor bumps and bruises Monday morning.

Police tell the station the car’s driver was not cited because the children entered the road before the bus crossing arm was extended.

The accident happened about 6:45 a.m. near Walnut Hill Elementary/Middle School in Shreveport.
