Posted On: March 6, 2015 under

According to a report, a 12-year-old Greenville boy was killed when he was hit by a school bus he was approaching to board. The Greene County school bus accident happened at the intersection of Snapps Ferry Road and Holder Road at approximately 6:49 a.m. and the sister of the victim had already boarded the bus when she asked the driver to wait because her brother was coming. The 62-year-old bus driver states he had already begun to drive away when he hit something he believed was a dog. After he backed up, however, he found the boy.

The Tennessee Highway Patrol (THP) reports that the bus driver has not presently been charged in this tragic pedestrian accident, but that charges may be filed pending an investigation. The Criminal Investigation Division of the THP is assisting with the investigation. Greene County school officials have planned to meet with school bus drivers to discuss and reinforce the importance of their job, and grief counselors will be available at Chuckey-Doak Middle School, where the boy was a student, to help students and staff.
