Police in Rhode Island say a 15-year-old girl was struck and killed by a school bus carrying students on their way to a suburban Providence high school.
Police Capt. Matthew Costello says the Pilgrim High School student was crossing the street at the time of the 7 a.m. accident on Friday. She was hit by the bus as it turned left at an intersection near the school in Warwick.
Police say in a statement that the bus caught the girl underneath it after she was struck.
Costello says the medical examiner is also investigating the death.
