A 12-year-old boy has died after being struck by a vehicle in the Port Stephens area yesterday.
About 4pm (Monday 30 March 2015) the boy was travelling on a school bus when it stopped outside an address on Marsh Road, Bobs Farm.
The boy got off the bus and as he crossed the road he was struck by a Triton Ute, being driven by a 19-year-old man.
He sustained critical injuries and died on the way to hospital.
The driver of the vehicle was taken to Calgary Mater Hospital for mandatory blood and urine testing.
Inquiries are continuing.
