An unidentified 16-year-old boy was killed when he was struck and pinned by a vehicle outside a Dallas high school Tuesday morning while he was waiting for a bus. The youth was struck by a neighbor who was making a U-turn just after having dropped him off at Bryan Adams High School.
According to a statement issued by the Dallas Police Department, emergency rescue crews extracted the boy, who was then transported to Baylor Hospital where he was pronounced dead on arrival.
The teen victim was not enrolled at Bryan Adams High School, but was being dropped off with another teen who is currently enrolled at the school. Officials with DISD said that the victim was catching a bus from the high school to Yvonne A. Ewell Townview Magnet Center.
The teens, according to Sr. Cpl. Black, were not related but were friends. The victim has not been identified pending notification of his family. No arrests are pending in the case at this time.
