The child was hit just after 3:30 p.m. in northwestern Las Vegas on Friday. The child was pronounced dead at the scene.
School officials say three children were on the bus when the accident happened. School officials plan to send a letter home with students on Monday to inform parents of the death.

The teen was taken to a local hospital for non-life threatening injuries.
The victims were not named and their age and gender was not provided.
