MEMPHIS, Tenn. — A 6-year-old Memphis boy was struck and killed by a day care bus

Anthony Scott, a first-grader, was in the parking lot of Oakshire Elementary when he was hit on Monday afternoon, according to The Commercial Appeal.

As of late Monday, officials did not know exactly what happened or whether anyone was to blame. The name of the bus driver was not released.

Police believe Anthony was in front of the bus when he was struck, but they don't know exactly how he got there. Memphis Police Maj. Loris Hopkins said Monday's rainy weather could have contributed to the accident.

Day care buses often pick up students for after-school care, but investigators don't know whether the boy was trying to board the bus.
