VANCOUVER, Wash. -- Vancouver police say an 11-year-old boy died after colliding with a bus while riding his bicycle.
Capt. Scott Willis said the collision happened near downtown on Saturday. The boy, identified as Benjamin Fulwiler, had been riding against the flow of traffic, crossed a street when the bus turned and the two collided.
The Columbian reported that the impact severed the boy’s left arm.
Willis says three bystanders, including an off-duty emergency room nurse, assisted the boy at the scene. He was found lying at the rear left side of the bus conscious but not responsive.
C-Tran spokesman Scott Patterson said there were 10 passengers on board the bus. He said the driver has been placed on administrative leave while the crash is being investigated.
