CUMBY, Texas (KLTV) - A 17-year-old boy was struck while preparing to get on a Cumby ISD school bus Wednesday morning.

According to an official from the Hopkins County Sherriff’s Office, a Cumby ISD school bus was stopped at the FM 275 overpass on Interstate 30 to pick up passengers.

“A female driver disregarded the bus’ flashing lights and struck a student preparing to get on the bus,” said Hopkins County Chief Deputy Tanner Crump.

The student, who was identified only as a 17-year-old boy, was transported to Christus Mother Frances Hospital in Sulphur Springs with what authorities say were non-life-threatening injuries.

At this moment, the Texas Department of Public Safety is investigating.
