This post has been updated.

A woman walking Monday morning in Arlington was struck by a school bus carrying 12 children on board, the Arlington County Police Department reports.

The woman was walking along South 8th and Carlin Springs Road when she was struck, police said. She was taken to a local hospital where she was in critical condition. None of the children were injured.

Police ask that anyone who witnessed the accident or has information relating to this incident call Detective Paul Marseilles at (703) 228-4237.

The accident involved a bus transporting students to Claremont Elementary School, according to a notice sent from the principal to parents. The principal met with students and a school counselor, two psychologists and a social worker were on hand to provide support.

The principal asked that parents be alert to any delayed reactions by the students, such as loss of appetite, problems sleeping or nightmares, or angry outbursts.

To ged0386,

I happen to know the lady who was struck by the bus. I'm sure her friends who read this news item don't appreciate your insensitive remarks.
