WASHINGTON — A Howard County high school student was struck by the bus he was trying to catch Monday morning in Ellicott City, Maryland.

The student was struck at around 6:50 a.m., Howard County Public Schools said in an alert sent to parents. The student was running to catch up to bus No. 806 when it turned a corner. The student slipped, and his leg was hit by the bus, spokesman Brian Bassett told WTOP.

The school system said the student’s injuries are not life-threatening, and his leg was not broken.

The other students on the bus were taken to Howard High School on another bus.
