A Whitley County school bus driver is on paid suspension while an investigation continues into the death of a 10-year-old student who was struck by her bus Monday.
Amanda Woliver's suspension is normal school board procedure pending completion of the investigation, the Whitley County Public Schools' transportation department said in a statement.
Jonathan Chatham, a fourth-grader at Whitley North Elementary School, was killed Monday afternoon when he somehow moved into the path of the bus. The vehicle was pulling away after dropping off Jonathan and three other children at a stop on Ky. 779 about 4:30 p.m. Monday.
Jonathan died at the scene.

No charges have been filed against Woliver, Kentucky State Police said Wednesday.
The school district initiated an internal investigation and is cooperating with troopers in their inquiry, Whitley Schools Superintendent Scott Paul said. A school resource officer also is participating, officials said.
Woliver has been a Whitley County school bus driver for more than two years and has driven an average of more than 120 miles a day, accident-free, according to the district's transportation department.
In addition to her regular driving duties, Woliver has driven for numerous field trips and extracurricular activities during and after the school day, district officials said.
