Marathon County Bus-Student Fatality

A 13-year-old boy is dead after being run over by a school bus in central Wisconsin.

The Marathon County sheriff's department says Brandon Pippenger was running to catch the bus in Rib Mountain when he fell under the rear tires of the bus.

Twenty-one kids were on the bus at the time.

Sheriff Randall Hoenisch says it doesn't appear the driver was at fault.

Pippenger was a seventh grader at John Muir Middle School. Counselors are being made available to students to help them cope with the death.
