A 6-year-old boy was struck and killed by a school bus Thursday as he jumped from his grandmother's car outside an elementary school, police said.

The boy was waiting in the car outside Scottwood Elementary for the bus that takes him to the school he attends, Maybury Elementary, about five miles away, said Sgt. Kevin Corcoran.

"He saw the bus coming, he got out of grandma's car, ran across the street in front of the bus, and the bus struck him," Corcoran said.

The driver apparently didn't see the child, he said.

The boy, who was not immediately identified, was taken to Columbus Children's Hospital where he died, police said.

Investigators were trying to determine whether charges should be filed, Corcoran said.
