GOODYEAR, Ariz. (AP) - Police in Goodyear have released the name of a teenager who died after being struck by a school bus last week.

They say 13-year-old Peyton Munger was an 8th grade student at Western Sky Middle School.

Police say no arrests have been made in the case and the cause of the fatal collision remains under investigation.

They say the teen was struck around 4 p.m. Friday near the middle school.

Munger later died from his injuries at a trauma center.

Police say the bus driver remained at the scene and impairment doesn't appear to be a factor in the incident.

The name of the bus driver hasn't been released.
