An 8-year-old Twin Lakes Elementary student came away unscathed after a near run-in with a school bus around 3:30 p.m. Monday.
After getting off the bus, the student kneeled down to tie his shoe. The bus driver did not see the boy, and started to drive the bus, but stopped before coming into contact with him.
The incident happened near the intersection of 314th St. and 30th Ave. Southwest, near Decatur High School.
A South King Fire and Rescue crew responded to the scene, checked on the student and determined that he was not injured.
In February, three Decatur High School students were injured in a bus accident outside of the high school. Two of the students were crossing a street near the school when they were struck; the third student was on board the bus. The student on board the bus was taken to St. Francis Hospital for treatment of minor injuries.
