TAYLORSVILLE, Ind. (AP) -- Authorities say a young brother and sister were injured when they were hit after possibly running out in front of a school bus in a central Indiana town.
Bartholomew County sheriff's Chief Deputy Todd Noblitt says a 9-year-old girl had serious injuries and was flown to Riley Hospital for Children in Indianapolis. Noblitt tells The Republic that a 6-year-old boy was taken to Columbus Regional Hospital.
The children were struck about 7:30 a.m. Thursday in a neighborhood of Taylorsville, about 30 miles south of Indianapolis. Noblitt says the children might have run in front of the bus.
Larry Perkinson of the Bartholomew Consolidated School Corp. says the injured siblings and the 35 children who were on the bus are Taylorsville Elementary School students.
