Woman charged with hitting child at Columbia school bus stop


Prosecutors have charged a woman with failing to stop for a school bus and injuring a child after she allegedly hit a boy at a southeast Columbia bus stop.

Boone County deputies arrested Nancy P. Metz, 19, of Columbia on Wednesday after a 10-year-old New Haven Elementary student was hit at a bus stop in the 4000 block of South Ponderosa Street. The boy had minor injuries, authorities said.

The school bus was stopped to pick up students when a black Lexus hit the 10-year-old crossing the street, the Boone County Sheriff's Office said Wednesday.

Metz was released from jail on bond Wednesday. She did not respond to ABC 17 News messages seeking comment Wednesday.

Metz told deputies that the bus was not stopped, that its stop sign was not displayed and that the child ran in front of her vehicle, according to a probable cause statement.

An initial court appearance is set for May 24.
