LAS VEGAS (KSNV MyNews3) – The mother of the 6-year-old boy struck by a school bus Monday morning was arrested after investigators say she routinely sent her two sons to the stop without supervision.

Kimberly Marie Russi, 31, of Las Vegas, was booked on two counts of child abuse, including on involving substantial bodily harm. Russi is also known as Kimberly Dela Cruz.

The accidents occurred at 6:40 a.m. Monday near the intersection of North Las Vegas Boulevard and Walnut Road.

An investigation shows that before the accident, the child entered the roadway and the approaching bus ran over the child’s right foot.

The child was transported to the UMC Trauma Center where he was treated for substantial but non-life threatening injuries.

Traffic officers determined the bus which struck the juvenile was not the bus which he normally rides, and the bus driver was not at fault in this accident.

Anyone with any information about this incident is urged to contact the LVMPD Abuse/Neglect Detail at (702) 828-3364 or, to remain anonymous, contact Crime Stoppers at (702) 385-5555 or at
