Child hit, killed by school bus in Las Vegas

Police say a child has died after being struck by a school bus in a residential neighborhood in Las Vegas.

The child was hit just after 3:30 p.m. Friday in northwestern Las Vegas. The child died at the scene.

School officials say three children were on the Clark County bus when the accident happened.

School officials plan to send a letter home with students Monday to inform parents of the death.

Meanwhile, another child was struck while on a sidewalk a few miles away after a driver lost control of their vehicle late Friday.

The child was taken to a local hospital for non-life-threatening injuries.

The victims were not identified, and their ages and gender were not provided.
