ST. PAUL (WCCO) — Counselors were on hand at Jackson Preparatory Magnet School in St. Paul Wednesday morning to assist kids who were on a school bus that struck and injured a pedestrian.

The incident happened Tuesday afternoon near the intersection of Western and Aurora avenues.

A 60-year old man was struck and was transported to Regions Hospital in critical condition, but he is expected to survive.

A school bus company official says this is the second time since March this particular driver has struck a pedestrian. The driver is on leave while an investigation is underway.

No one on the bus was injured in the crash. The kids on board were coming from Jackson Preparatory Magnet School on a bus contracted from Sunburst Transit.

The kids were transferred to another bus and taken home. Parents were notified of the incident by phone.
