About the School Bus-Pedestrian Accident

NBC reports that Edmond Boch IV was struck around 8:30 Monday morning as he passed in front of the stopped bus towards the passenger side to board.

As the Edmond was walking, the bus began to drive off, striking and killing him.

According to witness Anthony Lugo who was at the scene with the boy’s mother at the time of the accident, it appeared the bus driver was unaware that he had hit the boy and continued down the street.

Police have questioned the driver and are awaiting toxicology results. It is suspected that poor weather and low visibility may have played a role in the accident.
