Six-Year-Old Hit by Bus in House

A 6-year-old Long Island boy died Tuesday after a county bus hit his house when swerving to miss a pedestrian. The crash also injured his 7-year-old brother as well as 11 passengers, authorities said. The bus driver swerved to avoid hitting a pedestrian crossing a four-lane road, but hit the pedestrian anyway and slammed into the front bedroom of a multifamily home. Police did not release the name of the brothers, but said that the 6-year-old died at Nassau County Medical Center with his parents by his side.
