A spokesperson with the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department said the student stepped off the median and was hit by a truck traveling southbound on Emerson.

A nearby bus driver saw the student get hit. The bus driver said the student typically rides the bus farther down the road, so police believe he was trying to catch up because he was running late. source
