A man in a pickup truck apparently lost control of his vehicle and smashed into a school bus stop in Washington on Thursday, injuring six children, NBC News reported.
Kent Regional Fire Authority Spokesman Capt. Kyle Ohashi told NBC News the truck struck a mailbox before crashing into the bus stop, hitting four boys — critically injuring two. Ohashi said two others were injured by debris from the mailbox.
The truck’s driver hit a tree after hitting the boys and was found unconscious at the wheel. His foot was still on the gas, the sheriff’s office said in a statement.
