Child killed getting off school bus

Posted: Updated:

A kindergartener died Thursday after he was hit by a truck while getting off the school bus. The incident happened just after 4 p.m. on Hwy. 119 at Sims Rd. in Pembroke. Brian Entin reports.

Right now, one in four people in Savannah live in poverty. It has been that way for more than 30 years and the city council wants to change that.

Police are investigating whether smoke from nearby fires may have mixed with fog and blinded drivers, causing yesterday's deadly pileup on I-16 in Laurens County.
