A 7-year-old Pennsylvania boy was killed in a hit-and-run at a bus stop early Thursday morning.

That’s at least the sixth time in three days that a child has been hurt or killed at a bus stop, following similar incidents in Indiana, Kentucky, Mississippi and two cities in Florida.

In Franklin Township, Penn. the second-grader was found dead at the bus stop before the bus arrived, according to authorities

“Our school community is truly grieved by this terrible loss,” Tyrone Superintendent Cathy Harlow said in a statement. “Please keep the family in in your thoughts and prayers.”

The boy’s name and cause of death have not yet been released.

It’s been a deadly week at school bus stops, after three siblings were killed in Rochester, Indiana, Tuesday by a 24-year-old driver who claims she didn’t realize there were children trying to get onto the bus. She was charged with three counts of reckless homicide and one misdemeanor count of disregarding a stop sign and causing injury.

On Wednesday, a Mississippi man hit and killed a 9-year-old crossing the street to get to the bus, two brothers, 11 and 13, were hit in Louisville, Kentucky, and a kindergartener was injured in Tallahassee, Florida.

Five children and two adults were hit in Tampa Thursday morning when a speeding car drove past a bus stop, according to the Tampa Bay Times. Four of the children were hospitalized, including one in critical condition.
