The St. Joseph Police Department says it happened as Mason Adams was crossing St. Joseph Avenue about a block from the high school when he was struck by the bus about a half hour before classes started. Investigators say the bus was on Grand and was in the process of turning onto St. Joseph Avenue when Adams was hit. He was pronounced dead at the hospital in St. Joseph. The bus driver has been suspended during the investigation. Adams was a 16 years old junior honor student at Lafayette. The school immediately put its crisis team into place and counselors remain available today.
