ROY — A boy was flown to a local hospital after being injured in a crash involving a school bus in Roy Friday afternoon.

At 2:39 p.m., Roy Police spokesman Detective Josh Taylor said there was an auto-pedestrian crash involving a Weber School District school bus and a 12-year-old boy on his bike near 2500 W. 5175 South.
