Police in Florida say five people have been hit by a car at a school bus stop.

Authorities say one child was critically injured in the Thursday morning crash in Tampa. The other four victims suffered serious injuries.

Witnesses told officers that a car was driving fast when it hit two adults and three children.

Police say the driver is in custody and the crash is under investigation. The names and ages of the victims or the driver haven't been released.



The crash comes after three young siblings in the rural Indiana community of Rochester were hit and killed by a pickup truck on Tuesday as they crossed a two-lane highway to get to their school bus. Another child was critically injured in the incident. The driver of the truck was arrested and charged with three counts of reckless homicide and one misdemeanor count of disregarding a stop sign and causing injury.
