    A teen was hurt while crossing the street to get the school bus this morning.

    A 17-year-old boy was injured on Monday morning as he crossed the street to get onto a school bus on Old Town Road around 6:30 a.m.

    The teen was crossing Old Town Road at Macon Drive when a 21-year-old Branford man driving a 2000 Acura Integra hit him, according to Bridgeport police.

    Police said the school bus was stopped on Old Town Road, with flashing lights and the stop sign activated when a man, identified as Matthew Kuhn, was driving in the opposite direction on Old Town Road and hit the teen.

    The 17-year-old suffered a broken right leg and injuries to his left foot and an ambulance took him to Saint Vincent Medical Center to be treated for injuries that police said with serious injuries that were not considered life threatening.

    Kuhn was cited for failure to obey a school bus signal.
