FAYETTEVILLE, AR - Police say there will be no citation for a bus driver after the vehicle hit a child last week.

According to the police report, the driver of the University of Arkansas transit bus was speeding, going 35 in a 25. But police say that was only a minor contributing factor in the accident.

The bus hit Michael Lewallen, 7, on Saturday after police say he ran out into the road. 

He was in stable condition at Arkansas Children's Hospital at last report.
