SIX YEAR OLD LINCOLN CHILD KILLED EXITING SCHOOL BUS - Three High School Students Dead In Separate School Bus Crash

Three Cabell Midland High School students were killed this morning at Barboursville when their vehicle collided with a Cabell County school bus.

The children on the bus and driver were reportedly uninjured in the 6:45 a.m. accident.

The victims names are not yet available.

A six-year-old girl was struck and killed by a car after getting off a school bus near her home in Lincoln County about 5:30 Monday evening.

State Police say the school bus stopped on W.Va. 10, had its flashing lights on and stop sign out for the girl to cross the road.

The girl was struck by a car driven by Sylvia Martin, 68, of Culloden.

Police said (Martin) "stated that she saw the lights but didn't realize what they were."

The bus driver began CPR on the child, who was unresponsive when police arrived.

Corporal B.M. Greenlee said "Anytime something like this occurs there probably will be some type of charges forthcoming."

Greenlee blamed the circumstance of long bus rides as a contributing factor to the tragedy - "With it getting dark early, poor weather that we've had lately, the fact that it is getting darker before a lot of children are getting home from school due to living in rural areas, such a long commute, people need to take extra caution."
