ANDERSON, S.C. (AP) — The South Carolina Highway Patrol is investigating an accident in Anderson in which two children were hit by a truck at a bus stop.

The incident occurred shortly before 7 a.m. near Highway 29.

The children were taken to a hospital for a checkup. There was no immediate word on their injuries or on possible charges.
