HENDERSONVILLE, N.C. (AP) - Police in Hendersonville have charged a 17-year-old motorist after they say he passed a stopped school bus, struck a child and left the scene.

Local media outlets report the driver is charged with felony hit and run resulting in injury and felony passing a stopped school bus striking a person.

Sgt. Brandon McGaha said as children were boarding the bus Tuesday morning, the driver’s car hit the 12-year-old middle-school student and knocked him down. The boy was taken to Pardee Hospital for treatment of minor injuries.

McGaha said the driver went to his high school and turned himself in to the principal. The driver is held under a $6,000 bond, and a condition of his release is that he is not to drive until allowed by a judge.
