POMPANO BEACH — Authorities say a South Florida middle school student was hospitalized after he fell running to catch a bus and was then run over.

Broward Sheriff's deputies say the unidentified teen jumped onto the exterior of the bus Friday morning and held on for about a minute before being run over by the bus.

He was taken to the hospital and will be transferred to another hospital by helicopter once he has been stabilized.

Broward homicide investigators are looking into the accident due to the severity of the boy's injuries.
