Hawthorn Grade School Student's Bus Injury Report is Unfounded, Police Chief Says

By Bruce Kropp, WJBD News

Salem Police Chief Ron Campo says an investigation has shown a report that a nine-year-old Hawthorn Grade School student was injured while riding a school bus home on Wednesday afternoon are unfounded.  Campo says the video from the camera on the bus was reviewed by both police and school officials.  He reports the video showed the girl sat by herself on the bus and no one came near her.  The girl had been taken to Salem Township Hospital by her grandmother when complaining about being in pain after being struck while on the bus.  Campo reports the girl had no red marks or swelling to indicate the type of injuries that were alleged to have occurred.   He is satisfied nothing happened on the bus or school grounds.   Campo reports the department is continuing to investigate the girl's story to determine if something may have occurred elsewhere.
