McGarvey says the driver didn't realize he may have run the boy over, who was close to the road at the bottom of his driveway.

"And that's where many bus stops are for many of the rural locations, not only in Huntingdon, but just about every county in central Pennsylvania," McGarvey said.

The investigation is still ongoing.
