Milwaukee - On Friday, police responded to an accident involving a 3-year-old girl running into the street and getting struck by a school bus. The child was identified as Yanelisse Correa by relatives. Correa apparently before 3:00 p.m. ran into the street trying to reach her grandmother on the other side of the street at the 1600 block of S. 28th St., who was removing groceries from a vehicle. The child was struck by a school bus transporting special-needs students and is owned by Specialized Care Transport. At least six children were inside the bus when the accident occurred, according to school officials.
Correa was taken to Childrens's Hospital of Wisconsin where she was later pronounced dead.
Alderman Robert "Bob" Donovan from the 8th District, who lives next to Correa's grandmother tried to save the child when the accident happened, but she was not responding, according to Donovan. Donovan said, it was a tragic and an unfortunate accident.
Police continue to investigate.
