Police say a 7-year-old boy was critically injured after being struck by a driver while attempting to board a school bus in St. Paul. 

The child, identified as Ramadan Ahmed Wailye, was transported to a hospital in critical but stable condition, police said. 

The driver, a 59-year-old St. Paul man, of the vehicle involved in the crash is cooperating.

No arrests have been made and the investigation is ongoing. 

7 a.m. original story

Details are limited but St. Paul police have confirmed that a student was hit by a person driving a vehicle at a school bus stop Thursday morning. 

It happened around 6:30 a.m. in St. Paul at S. Robert St. and E. Wood St. The condition of the child is unknown, nor is there any information about the age of the student. 

Robert Street has been closed between Plato Blvd. and Cesar Chavez St. 

KSTP reports that the bus had its stop arm down at the time of the collision. 

This incident comes a little over a month after a 17-year-old Edina student was struck by a driver while she was about to get on a school bus. The girl was fortunate as she didn't suffer any major injuries, although police continue to investigate that hit-and-run. 

This is a developing story.
