A Tulsa driver was arrested after hitting kids waiting for a school bus early Tuesday morning.

A young girl was checked out at the scene for a bump on her head. None of the children were hurt seriously enough to require ambulance transport to the hospital.

Tulsa officer placed Kirk into custody and took him away in a police car. He was booked on one complaint of speeding too fast for conditions.
