KALISPELL, Mont. (AP) — Montana authorities have said a 6-year-old girl who was struck by a car while exiting a school bus remains in critical condition.

The Flathead Beacon reported Tuesday that the Olney Fire Department said the girl identified as Jordana Hubble has suffered widespread brain damage.

Authorities say the girl was getting off a bus northwest of Whitefish when a vehicle traveling about 25 mph (40 kph) struck her.

Montana Highway Patrol Trooper John Raymond said the bus had its lights flashing and its stop sign deployed.

Authorities say the unidentified driver was not arrested but charges are likely.

The Olney Fire Department and other community organizations are raising money to help the family pay medical bills and other expenses.
