Girl struck, killed by SUV while crossing street to bus stop


PALM COAST, Florida — A central Florida girl is dead after authorities say she was struck by an SUV while heading to her bus stop.

Florida Highway Patrol reports that 7-year-old Kymora Christian was crossing a street Wednesday morning when she was hit. Paramedics responded and took the Wadsworth Elementary School student to a Palm Coast hospital, where she was pronounced dead.

The Daytona Beach News-Journal (http://goo.gl/m3hSEj ) reports that the school bus was not at the bus stop at the time of the accident, but the driver came upon the scene afterward. There were no students aboard the bus at the time.

It wasn't immediately known if the SUV's driver would be cited.
