CHICAGO (AP) - A 2-year-old girl has been struck and killed by a Chicago commuter bus in the city's South Shore neighborhood.

The Chicago Transit Authority says the girl ran into traffic Monday afternoon and was hit by the No. 6 Jackson Park Express.

Witnesses tell WBBM Radio that the toddler was with a group of people in front of an apartment building when she stepped into the street.

Police say the girl was pronounced dead at the scene.
