A 10-year-old honor roll student fromReserve, La., died Monday morning as she rushed to catch a school bus. Jasmine Green, a fifth-grader at Fifth Ward Elementary in the St. John the Baptist Parish district, always ran late for the school bus, her mother says. But early Monday morning when she jumped a ditch trying to catch the bus, she was hit by the vehicle.

The front left corner of the bus apparently hit the girl, knocking her to the ground and under the rear tires To read The New Orleans Times-Picayune article, click here.
