ST. ALBERT, Alta. - RCMP and school officials in Alberta are investigating after a school bus hit and killed a six-year-old boy as he was walking to class.
Several students were on the bus when it hit the child early Friday in St. Albert, a bedroom community north of Edmonton.
The boy had been walking with other children to Ecole Marie Poburan, a French immersion Catholic elementary school, said Const. M.J. Burroughs. The boy was crossing a road across from the school and the bus was turning right, she said.
