Area Child Critically Injured in School Bus Mishap

Paramedics flew a Marianna child to Shands Hospital in Gainesville Tuesday night after a freak accident with a school bus.

State troopers say 5th grader Shelby Davisl was getting off her school bus on Josephine Drive around 5:00 p.m.

Apparently the driver snagged the girl's book bag when closing the doors and drove away.

The bus dragged the girl underneath the vehicle for several yards, as her father watched.

Troopers say the child is Critical, but stable condition. The accident is still under investigation.
