Police: School bus kills cyclist in Houston

(Jackie Vega/KXAN)

HOUSTON (AP) — Houston police are searching for a driver who they say hit and killed a 56-year-old bicyclist with a school bus and drove off. Cyclist Bobby Brooks, of Houston, was pronounced dead at the scene on Wednesday. Police say Brooks was riding through a crosswalk when the yellow bus hit him while making a turn.

Police say they don’t know who the bus belongs to or where it was going. A Houston school district spokeswoman says the vehicle wasn’t a district bus or one contracted to transport its students. It’s unclear if anyone else was on the bus, and police are investigating.
