Fla. Girl Struck by Truck on Way to School, Dies

BROOKSVILLE, Fla. (AP) - Authorities say a Tampa-area girl walking a bus stop for school was killed after being hit by a driver in a pickup truck.

A Florida Highway Patrol report says 13-year-old Kaitlyn Harper died from her injuries Tuesday morning, shortly after the 6:45 a.m. accident.

Authorities say driver Mark Buel didn't see the West Hernando Middle School student before his truck struck her. Charges against the 52-year-old are pending.

The crash took place in Brooksville, about 50 miles north of Tampa.
