School bus kills East Texas toddler

Toddler walked in front of bus as it pulled away from stop

An 18-month-old girl is dead after she was run over by a school bus that had just offloaded children in a rural East Texas subdivision.

Authorities identified the girl as Arra Preciado. Trooper Jean Dark of the Texas Department of Public Safety says accident happened about 3:30 p.m. Tuesday about 3 miles northwest of Tyler.

She said the child walked in front of the Chapel Hill school bus as it pulled away from the stop, first knocking her down then running over her body.

Dark said the bus driver, at first, was unaware that the child had been run over but stopped around the corner from the site.
