11-year-old killed this morning in Butler County waiting for school bus

Local News

An 11-year-old Butler County student was killed and his two siblings were injured when all three were struck by an SUV while waiting for a school bus on the side of the road.

The accident happened at the intersection of Pine Drive and Geibel Road in Summit Township in Butler County.  Investigators say the early morning glare from the sun may have prevented the driver from seeing the students around nine this morning.

The names have not been released, pending notification of family members.  

The Butler School Superintendent told WTAE in Pittsburgh that he was at a loss for words to react to the tragedy.
