New information after a bus hits a 7-year-old boy in Fayetteville.

Police are now saying they won't ticket the driver of that bus.

According to the police report, the driver of the University of Arkansas transit bus was speeding, going 35 in a 25. But police say that was only a minor contributing factor in the accident.

The bus hit Michael Lewallen Saturday after police say he ran out into the road. He's currently in stable condition - but his stepfather told us today he doesn't have a release date from the hospital yet.
