FARGO, N.D. (AP) — Police say a 6-year-old boy was struck by a car Friday afternoon while crossing a Fargo street after getting off a school bus.

The Forum reports that the boy was taken to a local hospital with unknown injuries. His name has not been released.

Sgt. Ross Renner says a Fargo school bus was stopped with its lights on and stop arm out when the boy was hit.

Renner says it appears that an eastbound car driven by a 75-year-old Fargo woman struck the boy as he was crossing the street.

Police say a preliminary investigation revealed the woman failed to stop for the school bus, but charges have not yet been filed.
