A year and a half-old boy was crushed to death by a private school bus here this morning. The driver managed to run away from the spot after people present at the spot raised a hue and cry.

The deceased has been identified as Piyansh, a resident of Bishanpura village of Zirakpur.

Investigating officer Satman Singh said the incident happened in front of the victim’s house.
