Truck injures Anchorage girl at bus stop

Posted: Thursday, June 06, 2002

ANCHORAGE (AP) -- A 7-year-old girl was injured when she was hit by a truck Monday morning while waiting at a school bus stop with other children.

The girl received injuries to her legs and was taken to a hospital, said police spokesman Ron McGee said.

The driver of the truck, Jan Tucker, was cited for unsafe backing, McGee said. Tucker's age was unavailable.

According to police, witnesses said a ''large number'' of children were waiting for the bus near a trailer court office when they saw a red truck move out of the nearby parking lot in reverse and strike the girl.

''A lot of kids tried to signal the driver to stop (afterward), but she didn't stop,'' McGee said.

Officers later found Tucker. Tucker told them she had visited the office, then backed out slowly and was unaware of having struck the girl and of others telling her to stop, he said.
