Girl in Crosswalk Hit by Mesa School Bus Likely to Survive, Mesa Police Say; Driver to Get Ticket, "at Minimum."
An 18-year-old girl who was run over by a Mesa school bus yesterday has "survivable" injuries, Mesa police say.
Wynnona Brooks had been walking eastbound on Crismon Road in a crosswalk at about 6:50 a.m. when the bus, carrying about 20 students and driven by Kenneth Bischof, 59, struck her during a turn off of Broadway Road.
The impact knocked down Brooks, but the bus continued for a few more feet and stopped on top of her.
With a dislocated hip, broken femur and extensive road rash, cops say she remained trapped under the bus until rescue workers showed up and extricated her.More »
