MAXTON, North Carolina (AP) -- A tractor-trailer slammed into a stopped school bus Tuesday, killing a 5-year-old girl who was getting on and injuring a dozen other pupils, officials said.

A parent who was helping the girl get on the bus also was injured, said Henry Byrd, assistant superintendent of Robeson County schools.

The bus careened 200 feet through yards before coming to a stop.
