A 45-year-old man is
under arrest after hitting a 7-year-old student Wednesday morning in Haines City.
Sheriff's deputies say
Glenn McCarthy ignored the flashing stop sign on a school bus at Johnson Avenue
and Ellison Parkway around 7:15 a.m.
As he passed in his
Dodge Caravan, deputies say Vanessa Perez walked out in front of the vehicle.
She was struck and flown several feet in the air.
The good news from
Arnold Palmer Children's Hospital is that she is expected to recover. Right
now, she's listed in stable condition.
McCarthy has been
charged with willful reckless driving and failing to stop for a school bus. He was booked in the Polk County jail.
