Teen injured when hit by car at North Las Vegas school bus stop

Updated November 2, 2017 - 7:42 am

North Las Vegas police are investigating after a teenager was hit by a vehicle at a school bus stop Thursday morning.

Police spokesman Eric Leavitt said a 16-year-old was hit about 6:40 a.m. on Commerce Street and Rossmoyne Avenue, near Carey Avenue. The teen was taken to the hospital with a minor ankle injury, he said.

Leavitt said a school bus was stopped on the side of the road without its lights on or signs out when a car tried to go around it and hit the teen.

Earlier reports by police incorrectly said the bus hit the juvenile.

Leavitt said there were students on the school bus at the time of the crash but they were not injured.
