Thursday morning a tragic accident occurred in Kansas City, Kansas at the intersection of 66th Street and Parkview Avenue.  A 9-year-old girl and her younger sister were waiting for the school bus when the 9-year-old was struck and killed.  According to witnesses the bus driver hit a stop sign at the intersection, was continuing on, not realizing he had hit the child, until another child riding on the bus alerted the driver.  Students were moved to another bus and taken to school following the accident.  The driver is on paid leave pending an investigation into the incident. 

The victim's mother was nearby when the accident occurred.  The 9-year-old attended John F. Kennedy Elementary School where the Kansas City Kansas School District has put a crisis team in place to help the children.

Residents reported that the area has always been ripe for an accident as the streets are narrow, with no sidewalks and buses come through the area too fast.
