(as of 10:30 a.m. 9/14/16) FLORESVILLE -- A fifth-grade student at Floresville North Elementary School has been transported by air ambulance to University Hospital in San Antonio after being hit by a car this morning while waiting for the school bus. The child's condition was reported as stable.

According to Floresville ISD superintendent Sherri Bays, the incident occurred at approximately 6:15 a.m. on U.S. 181 north of Floresville; a car passed the stopped school bus on the shoulder of U.S. 181 and struck the student, one of two waiting there for the bus.

Eagle Creek Volunteer Emergency Services responded, as well as the Texas Department of Public Safety Highway Patrol (DPS) and other agencies. DPS Trooper Jack Johnson continues to investigate the accident; he said charges are pending against the female driver of a white four-door Pontiac.
