Calloway County High School student falls from moving bus

A Calloway County High School student opened the rear emergency door of a school bus Monday morning and fell out while the bus was still moving, according to a Calloway County Schools spokesman.

Murray Police Department Sgt. David Howe says the bus was moving at 40-45 miles per hour when the student fell out.

CCS public relations coordinator David Dowdy says the bus was traveling west on Wiswell Road near Chickory Drive and Southwest Calloway Elementary when the student fell from the bus.

Dowdy says emergency responders, law enforcement, district transportation officials and a CCHS administrator responded to the scene of the incident.

The student was transported to Murray-Calloway County Hospital. The condition of the student is not known at this time, according to Dowdy. No other students on the bus were injured. The rest of the students on the bus were transported to Southwest Elementary and then the older students were taken to Calloway middle and high schools.

Dowdy says the incident is still being investigated.
