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.
