A student en route to Dallas ISD's Townview Magnet died this morning after being struck by a car.
The incident happened at East Dallas' Bryan Adams High School. According to news reports, the teen was dropped off by a woman just before 9 a.m. to wait for the bus. The woman, who was driving a green Volkswagen Beetle, did a U-turn on Milmar Drive and hit the teen.
Fox 4 reports that the driver was questioned by police but wasn't arrested.
