POLK COUNTY, TX -- A 15-year-old boy died Thursday after being struck by a semi-truck in a driveway near Livingston, according to ABC13.

The fatal incident unfolded off U.S. Highway 59, north of the city.

A preliminary investigation found that a northbound Livingston ISD school bus had come to a stop in the outside lane. The bus' red lights were flashing and its stop sign was extended as a 15-year-old student stepped off the bus and began walking away.

Authorities said Autumn Witt, 28, was driving a Toyota vehicle that was stopped behind the school bus when the car was rear-ended by a northbound semi-truck driven by Gregory Jackson, 41.

According to the Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS), the semi then veered to the right of the roadway, where it struck the teen in a driveway. First responders pronounced the teen deceased at the scene.

No injuries to either Jackson or the Toyota driver were reported.

DPS said Jackson was taken into custody following the crash. He has since been charged in the boy's death.

A section of US-59 was shut down during the emergency response and investigation.
