TOMBALL, Texas -

An 8-year-old boy was hit by a car as he tried to get on a school bus on Friday morning, officials said.

Harris County sheriff's deputies said the incident happened in the 19300 block of Dolan Springs near Canyon Gate in the Tomball area about 8 a.m.

Tomball Independent School District officials said the boy was on the other side of the street from the school bus and ran across the street to get on the bus.

The boy ran into a car that was headed in the opposite direction of the bus, investigators said.  The boy was taken to Tomball Regional Hospital. His condition has not been released, but officials said his injuries were minor.

Deputies said the driver of the car told them that the bus driver waived her to pass. The bus driver denied that claim, officials said. There were no witnesses to verify either claim, deputies said.

Investigators have not said if the driver was ticketed.
