Fayetteville, N.C. — An Alderman Road Elementary School student was hit Tuesday morning at a school bus stop, authorities said.
The incident occurred at the intersection of Research Drive and Summerfield Lane at about 6:50 a.m., authorities said. The student, whose name and age weren't released, was taken to Cape Fear Valley Medical Center for treatment of non-life-threatening injuries.
The student was hit by the passenger-side mirror of a 2009 Chevrolet car as it passed a stopped school bus, authorities said. The driver, April Heath Hinson, of Wade, was charged with failure to stop for a school bus and failure to reduce speed to avoid collision with a pedestrian.
