An elementary school student was still in critical condition Thursday after she was hit by a school bus Wednesday in South Jordan.
The 10-year-old girl was on a southbound bus that pulled onto the shoulder of 4000 West near 10600 South about 4:15 p.m. to drop students off, said South Jordan police spokesman Sam Winkler. She got off the bus and began crossing 4000 West to the east, Winkler said. Another Jordan School District bus was traveling south on 4000 West; the driver did not see the girl and the bus struck her, Winkler said.
Police reported Wednesday that the Welby Elementary student was 8 years old, but said Thursday that age was inaccurate.
