Student Killed By SUV While Walking To School Bus

A 16-year-old high school student was struck and killed by a sport utility vehicle as he crossed the road to board a school bus.

The Associated Press reported that Nick Adkins, a sophomore at
McMichael High School in Rockingham County, died Monday morning after being struck by an SUV that failed to stop for a bus waiting on N.C. 770 to pick up students from an apartment complex.

Maj. Roger Harris of the Stoneville Police Department said witnesses confirmed the bus had come to a complete stop and that all warning lights and the stop arm were activated.

Harris said 60-year-old Judy Earlene Stilwell was charged with
passing a stopped school bus involving injury or death. Stilwell
was released on $15,000 bail and is scheduled to appear in court on
February 10.
