SALISBURY, N.C. (AP) - Rowan County authorities say a teen has been struck and killed while he was crossing a road to board a school bus.

The collision occurred shortly before 7 a.m. Thursday about four miles northwest of Salisbury.

A witness told WBTV the bus was stopped with its stop arms out and lights flashing. James Cottrell said a car approaching from the opposite direction struck the student.

The teen was a junior at West Rowan High School. His name has not been released.

The students on the bus were transferred to another bus and taken to school.

The North Carolina Highway Patrol says charges are pending against the driver of the car. The driver's name has not been released.
