UPDATE: Authorities identify 16-year-old who died in incident involving JCPS bus

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Authorities have identified a 16-year-old who died after he somehow got out of the front door of a Jefferson County Public Schools bus while it was moving.

That youth has been identified as 16-year-old Dylan Anthony Hill, according to a news release from the Jefferson County Coroner's Office.

The accident happened just before 1 p.m. Monday on Westport Road, near Ormsby Lane and the Westport Village Shopping Center.

LMPD said Hill, who was a Uspiritus-Brooklawn resident, somehow got out of the front door of the bus while it was moving, hit the pavement and was killed.

JCPS interim superintendent Marty Pollio said the bus was enroute to a state facility and that there were multiple adults on the bus to monitor the students.

The driver and other students on the bus were taken on a different bus to another location where crisis counselors were waiting. 

Louisville Metro Police Officer Vadim Dale said it's a tragedy.  

"It's traumatic, and again ... our thoughts and prayers go out to the family and those that may have witnessed it," Dale said. "It's a tragic time anytime you get a call like this and answer a fatality involving a juvenile whose life was cut short."

LMPD does not believe anyone will face any charges. The traffic unit is investigating.
