The auto-pedestrian collision happened about 3:30 p.m. near the intersection of Pebble Rock Drive and Fall Cliff Road, Metro Police said.

"We are committed to keeping the public informed as more details become available about this tragic accident," Amanda Fulkerson, a CCSD spokeswoman, said in a statement. "Our crisis response team is at the scene and will be working with the three children who were riding the bus at the time of the incident. Neither the three students on the bus nor the driver sustained any injuries."

Fulkerson said a letter would be sent home Monday with students "at the appropriate school" to keep parents informed of the situation. She did not identify the school

“We would like to extend our deepest sympathy to the family," Fulkerson added.

Officers are on scene investigating.

Witness of the fatal crash are asked to come forward and speak with police.
