ABILENE, Kan. (AP) — Authorities have identified a 7-year-old Kansas girl killed when she was hit by a car as she crossed a street to board her school bus.
Cecilia Graf, a first-grader at St. Andrew’s Catholic School in Abilene, was fatally hit by a car Wednesday morning, Dickinson County Sheriff Gareth Hoffman said.
Hoffman said the bus was stopped with its flashing red lights on when a car driven by a 15-year-old high school student hit the girl, who died at an Abilene hospital.
