CABARRUS COUNTY, NC— A six-year-old boy was critically injured when he fell under a school bus Wednesday at 9 o’clock near the Royal Oaks Gardner Apartments in Clemson Court. The boy remains in critical, but stable condition.

The boy, whose name remains disclosed due to his age, is under the care of Carolina Medical Center in Charlotte. The investigation and report of the case were filed by Capt. Chuck Adams of the Kannapolis Police Department.

A video from the school bus showed that the small boy was running diagonally from the right rear side of the bus when he fell beneath it. Police report that the bus was initially believed to be backing up, but the video suggests otherwise.

Capt. Adams said that no charges were filed or planned to be filed against the bus driver.
