BENBROOK (1080 KRLD) - A driver will be facing charges after hitting a child in Benbrook this morning.

"It was a six year old boy that was hit by a car while he was trying to board a school bus," says Benbrook Police Sgt. Michael Mullinax.

The boy was trying to cross Crossland Rd. at around 7:15 this morning when he was hit.

Mullinax says the boy should survive.

"He was injured, but the injuries didn't seem to be anything that could threaten his life," Mullinax says.

Once the extent of the boy's injuries are established, police will be filing charges.

"It's confirmed at least that the red lights on the school bus were flashing," says Sgt. Mullinax, "and that the driver did then try to pass by the school bus which they shouldn't have."
