Tragedy has struck the Springtown school district.  An 11-year-old boy was struck and killed by school bus early Monday morning outside his home.

The accident occurred about 6:30 a.m. at 121 Hilltop Meadows, between Springtown and Azle, as the bus stopped to pick up another child across the street from the boy’s home, said Department of Public Safety trooper Gary Rozzell.

“The woman bus driver stopped the bus and activated the lights,” Rozzell said. “The boy came up beside the bus as she deactivated the lights. The bus started to pull forward and the boy couldn’t get out of the way, and was struck by the left front of the vehicle.”
