KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Officials say a 5-year-old girl has been hit by a vehicle in Knoxville as she crossed the street after getting off her school bus.
Officials say Alyssa Russell suffered multiple injuries that weren't life-threatening and was taken to East Tennessee Children's Hospital.
The Knoxville News Sentinel (http://bit.ly/1GMPuRi ) reported that police cited 21-year-old Andrea Nicole Medley of Knoxville with two counts of passing a school bus.
According to the investigation, two school buses were stopped around 3 p.m. Friday with stop signs deployed and lights flashing when the driver of a van passed both buses. Officials said the vehicle hit the Mooreland Heights Elementary kindergartner as the van was passing the second bus and the girl was crossing the street.
A hospital spokeswoman didn't immediately return a call.
