Driver Strikes Seven PeopleTAMPA- According to ABC-7.com, a pedestrian crash at a school bus stop on Thursday in Tampa sent seven people to the hospital. The crash is the fifth time that students have been hit at a school bus stop in three days.

The other pedestrian accidents took place in another Florida city, Mississippi, and Indiana. A second grader in Pennsylvania was killed by a slow-moving vehicle near his home and found dead on the roadside on Thursday.

The most recent incident involved a Ford Escort that was traveling fast according to witnesses. The vehicle struck the pedestrians who were on the side of the street. Police have yet to determine whether the driver was speeding.

The victims include two adults and three school children. One of the children was left in critical condition. Reports indicate that the injuries are not life-threatening. The ages of the children are 6, 9 and 12.

The driver, a 47-year-old man, stayed at the scene. No charges have been filed.

All of the students attend the same school which is an elementary and middle school.

The boy killed in Pennsylvania was struck by a vehicle that left the scene and was discovered by the bus driver who was to pick the child up for school. In Indiana, three siblings, a nine-year-old girl, and twin 6-year-old boys were killed while crossing the street to get to their bus stop and another child was injured.
