Bartow Schools Superintendent John Harper said the sixth-grader is "in the hospital and seems to be doing OK."
A 13-year-old boy, who had just gotten off the school bus, was severely injured today when a vehicle struck him on Euharlee Road, Euharlee Police Chief Terry Harget said.
The teen, a Bartow County Schools student, got off the bus and went to the mailbox, then turned to get back on the road and was struck in the roadway at Price Mobile Home Park. He was airlifted to Scottish Rite Children's Hospital, but Harget didn't know the extent of his injuries, other than "severe," or if they're life threatening.
The accident is still under investigation, and no charges have filed at this time.
It happened near the Dollar General, according to Bartow Scanner, whose Facebook fans, many locals in the area at the time, comment on the incident and helicopter landing.
