Brooklyn, NY (February 24, 2021) – Around 8:30 a.m. on Wednesday morning, February 24, a child was killed in a pedestrian accident involving a bus in Brooklyn.

According to police, a school bus came to a stop at the intersection of Hooper Street and South Fifth Street. The bus picked up a 9-year-old boy at the intersection. His 6-year-old brother was also supposed to board the bus but ran into the street as the bus was driving off. He was struck by the school bus, which continued driving and did not stop.

Another bus driving in the area came to a stop and found the 6-year-old child lying there, who was pronounced dead at the scene of the accident.

Police eventually caught up with the first bus driver, who claimed that he was not aware that he struck the child. He was taken into the station for questioning.

The investigation into the accident continues.

We would like to offer our deepest condolences to the family of the deceased victim at this time.
