FORT PIERCE, Fla. (AP) - Authorities say a 13-year-old boy was seriously injured in a central Florida school bus crash.

Fort Pierce police say the St. Lucie County school bus was carrying seven students to Dan McCarty Middle School Friday morning when 94-year-old Frances McNees crashed into it at an intersection.

Officials say the boy was airlifted to a West Palm Beach hospital. He was suffering from a head injury. Scripps Treasure Coast Newspapers (https://goo.gl/Ai7XHl ) reports that a 13-year-old girl on the bus and McNees reportedly sustained minor injuries.

A witness told police McNees initially stopped at a stop sign but then drove through and hit the bus. McNees was cited with failing to yield to the right of way.
