A 9-year-old Florida boy died after he crawled under a moving school bus and was run over on Tuesday, the Florida Highway Patrol said.

According to an FHP crash report obtained by WESH, the bus driver had just dropped off the boy at the Waterford East Apartment homes on Wharf Lane in Orange County around 4 p.m. Shortly after, the boy ran back toward the bus and crawled underneath it as it was moving.

WOFL reported that the bus driver was unaware of the boy’s actions and ran over him. The boy’s aunt told WOFL that her nephew ran under the bus to chase a football, adding that he was an avid football player.
