NORTON, Ohio-- A very difficult day in Norton after the tragic death of a student who was hit by a school bus.

Norton Schools were open Thursday, one day after the accident, to help students and staff grieve together.

Sixteen-year-old Kyle Richmond, of Barberton, was leaving school on his skateboard on Wednesday when he apparently tripped and fell into the path of a bus. The incident is still under investigation, but appears to be a tragic accident.

Thursday evening, balloons were released in honor of Kyle.
