A 6-year-old girl in Texas was fatally struck by her own school bus as she was trying to catch it on Tuesday.

Sophia's bus was late, so she began to head home with her father when she saw the bus and turned around to catch it, KTRK-TV reported.

That's when tragedy struck. She was accidentally hit by the bus.

"My mom actually heard the scream," neighbor Melanie Estrada told the TV station. "After she screamed, I ran after it, and I saw her."

The girl died a short time later, according to reports.
