Four of them involved children struck by school buses and two incidents were fatal.
Police say the school bus driver that struck and injured a child in April was issued several tickets after passing another school bus on Maple Avenue. The driver who injured a 6-year-old in the same area in Monsey the month before was also ticketed, according to police, but authorities didn’t say what for.

Ramapo police say another incident that killed a child in New Square was deemed an accident and that the others are being investigated by Spring Valley police.
News 12 reached them for information but hasn't heard back.
