Girl Dies in School Bus Mishap

A Marianna fifth grader at Riverside Elementary has died after a freak accident with her school bus earlier this week.

Florida Highway Patrol troopers say 11-year-old Shelby Davis was getting off the bus on Josephine Drive.

The driver thought the little girl was out of the way and closed the door, snagging Shelby's book bag, and began to drive away.

Shelby was dragged underneath the bus for several yards, reportedly crushing her pelvic area. Her father was at the bus stop and saw the whole thing.

Paramedics flew Shelby to Shands Hospital in Gainesville where she died Wednesday night.
