Investigating Deputy Joey Pate said in the report that a Lake Hamilton school bus driver slowed down at the usual spot in the 3300 block of Old Dallas road in Pearcy but initially 7-year-old Hannah Martin wasn't there. So, they say, he started on but the child and her mother were in a yard nearby and deputies say Hannah ran into the road and that's when she was hit.
Garland County deputies say the investigation is on-going. The driver wasn't hurt in the crash. We are not releasing his name because he's not been charged with a crime.
