Around 3:11 p.m. Thursday, a vehicle hit an 11-year-old St. Marys Catholic Middle School student at the intersection of Bucktail and Belsole roads.

According to police, Deborah Gerlach of Emporium hit the child while she was crossing at the bus stop.

St. Marys Area School District’s superintendent Dr. G. Brian Toth said in an interview Tuesday morning that the bus was stopped with the stop sign and safety arm out and the red lights flashing.

“It is my understanding that the student had already reached the white line on the opposite side of the road before being hit by the car,” Toth added.

The sixth grader was life-flighted to Children’s Hospital in Pittsburgh where she was monitored for head injuries, according to a social media post from the Elk County Catholic School System.

“She has a concussion and some small spots on her forehead and the back of head that they are observing. She has stayed alert throughout the entire ordeal, something that we are all very relieved to hear,” the school system’s post said. Read more...
