A 6 year old boy was killed just moments after getting off the school bus in Pointe Coupee Parish.

Monte Stevens was hit by a car as he ran towards his home. It happened just after 6:00 Monday night, on LA 1.

State police say the bus had its lights and stop signs activated. According to Troopers, Gloria Green did not stop, and hit the boy.

The child died at the scene.

Troopers don't think Green was under the influence. She faces negligent homicide charges.
