Police in the Bronx are investigating after a young boy was struck and injured by a yellow bus while heading to school Thursday, 1/16/14.
It happened around 7:30 a.m. in front of Santa Maria School at the intersection of Zerega Avenue and Glebe Street in Parkchester. Police say the 6-year-old was crossing the street with his older sister.
The Archdiocese of New York says there is normally a crossing guard at that intersection but they called out. A replacement guard did not arrive at the intersection until more than an hour after the accident.
The boy's injury happened one day after Mayor Bill de Blasio announced a major push to cut down on traffic accidents.
Fire officials say the boy was taken to Jacobi Hospital where he is being treated for a leg injury.
