HAGERSTOWN - A 6-year-old Pangborn Elementary School student was struck early Monday by the school bus he was boarding.
The boy was boarding the bus on Youngstoun Drive about 7:45 a.m., according to Washington County Public Schools spokeswoman Carol Mowen.
Sheriff's deputies said the boy was taken to Washington County Hospital for treatment of his injuries, which were described as "minor." Police and school officials declined to release additional details about the accident, saying the incident was under investigation.
The school bus driver, whose name was not released, had been driving a bus for the school system for only six weeks, Mowen said. The man received training and certification before being assigned a bus route.
