A child was injured after being hit by a car while trying to board a school bus earlier this morning.
The accident happened around 7:40 a.m. Thursday at Chelesee Avenue and Rush Avenue in Andale, northwest of Wichita.
According to investigators, a westbound school bus was stopped at the intersection with lights flashing while children boarded. That's when an eastbound car came through the intersection and hit an 8-year-old boy. The child was taken to a Wichita hospital with a leg injury.
Officers believe the car driver's view may have been obstructed by the sun, but he was cited for inattentive driving.
