Forty-six students from Robert Frost Elementary School were onboard a bus that hit a woman in a crosswalk in Pasco on Monday.
Pedestrian Laquilla Upton, 52, of Pasco, was listed in satisfactory condition Tuesday at Kadlec Regional Medical Center with a leg injury.
Bus driver Trevor Nieforth had just picked up the load of children and was turning left onto North 22nd Avenue with a green light when Upton was crossing in the crosswalk. She was walking with the signal when she was hit, said Sgt. Brad Gregory.
None of the students were injured.

The Pasco School District is conducting an investigation of the driver’s role in the collision, and the Washington State Patrol is inspecting the bus to ensure it is safe to use.
