Elementary school student dragged more than 100 feet by bus

Police say a young Louisville girl who was dragged by a school bus more than 100 hundred feet did not sustain life-threatening injuries.

Multiple media outlets report a student at Wilkerson Elementary School suffered road rash and was taken to a hospital Friday after being pulled by a bus when her backpack got caught in the door.

Louisville Metro Police spokesman Dwight Mitchell says the female driver had stopped to let the girl off at her babysitter's house and closed the door on the girl's backpack. The driver did not notice the girl was being dragged until a car behind the bus sped up to the bus with its horn blaring, causing the driver to stop.

Police have not released the identity of the girl or the bus driver.
