Western Dubuque Student Hit by Vehicle at Bus Stop

A Western Dubuque student was transported to the hospital after he was hit by a vehicle at a bus stop Friday morning.

The Dubuque County Sheriff’s Office says it happened in the 20000 block of Highway 52 North around 7:15 am. The initial investigation shows a vehicle driven by 26-year old Kelly Klein of Holy Cross was southbound, approaching a Western Dubuque Community School District bus stop. A 7-year old child got out of his parent’s vehicle and started crossing the road to the bus when Klein’s passenger-side mirror struck him.

The child was transported to Finley Hospital in Dubuque with what authorities believed were non-life-threatening injuries.

The accident remains under investigation and possible charges are pending.
