A five-year-old boy was run over and killed in a bus accident Monday while riding his bike in the West Bank settlement of Beit El. The bus driver apparently failed to notice the child riding in the street when the boy was caught between the tires of the moving vehicle. 

Paramedics arrived at the scene only to pronounce the child dead at the scene.

The bus driver was detained for questioning and more details are expected to be release at a later time.
