Canadian Student Clipped by Semi-Trailer on Way to School

A 6-year-old from Sandy Bay First Nation in Manitoba, Canada, was hit by a semi-truck while trying to board his school bus, CBC news reported.

The boy was exiting the car and attempting to board his school bus with his sister on Nov. 28, when a semi-truck reportedly passed a school bus with its stop arm and lights activated. The force was strong enough to knock Leland Campbell’s boots off.

Campbell was taken to the hospital and was reported to be in stable condition. A photo of the boy showed him with bumps, bruises and scrapes.

The semi driver reportedly stopped after the collision and was arrested at the scene for the dangerous operation of a motor vehicle. He was released on court-imposed conditions, with a future court date.
