A 12-year-old boy is in fair condition after being run over by a  school bus in western Wisconsin on Friday.

The accident happened shortly before 5 pm Friday in River Falls.

Aubart says the bus knocked Jacob to the ground and the rear wheels ran over his legs.

No children were on the bus. The driver was not cited.

A hospital spokeswoman says Jacob was in fair condition on Monday at Gillette Children’s Specialty Healthcare in St. Paul.
