A 12-year-old boy sustained minor injures Thursday morning when he jumped off a bicycle before the bike was hit by a school bus in northwest Fresno, the California Highway Patrol reported.
The incident took place about 7 a.m. as the boy was riding eastbound on Santa Fe Avenue and crossing Figarden Drive against a red light, CHP spokesman Axel Reyes said. After the boy ditched the bicycle, it was crushed under the wheel of the northbound bus. The boy sustained the injuries from hitting the pavement.
Reyes said there were 44 students on the bus, which was bound for Bullard High School. There were no injuries reported on the bus, and the students were transferred to another bus to finish their trip to school.
