Update: 6-year old North Callaway student killed by a bus

The Missouri Highway Patrol has still not released its investigation into a school bus accident that killed 6 year old Hunter Pitt of Williamsburg.
Pitt was struck by the bus after he got off in front of his home Tuesday.
The bus driver was 77 year old Willie Leonberger.
KRCG investigated the rules for older people who drive buses.
The Highway Patrol administers the tests for a commercial drivers' license or CDL, which is required for a bus driver.
The license must be renewed every six years until a driver reaches the age of 70.
School bus drivers 70 and older must renew their license every year.
According to patrol spokesman Lt. John Hotz, that includes a pre-trip inspection test, basic skills test, road test, vision test and road sign test.

Officials with the Missouri Highway Patrol confirmed that Hunter Pitt, 6, was killed when getting off the bus at approximately 4:10 p.m. on County Road 182 near Williamsburg.
“A 6-year-old boy was exiting the bus with at least one other student,” said Sgt. Paul Reinsch with the Highway Patrol. “Apparently the bus driver didn’t realize the students weren’t all clear and pulled away.”
He said Pitt was pulled under the bus and run over. First-responders pronounced him dead at the scene.
“Our thoughts and prayers are with everyone involved,” North Callaway Schools Superintendent Bryan Thomsen said.
Thomsen said he could not “give any information or confirm anything at this time” about the accident, although he did confirm the district owns all of its buses.
Reinsch said none of the other 22 students on the bus were injured, although they had to wait for another bus to arrive to take them home as emergency officials began their investigation into the accident.
