ROYAL PALM BEACH, FL - A second high school student who was struck by a car at bus stop in Royal Palm Beach last week has died of his injuries, according to WPTV.

This is an update to a previous story.

The second victim was a 15-year-old boy who passed away on March 25.  The first student to die as a result of the crash was a 15-year-old girl.

The two were among a group of four Royal Palm Beach Community High School students who were waiting for their bus on March 22. They were struck by an Alfa Romero Stelvio at about 7 a.m. after the driver, 57-year-old Angel Antonio Lopez, lost control of the vehicle and drove onto the sidewalk.

The two other teenagers hit by the car were reported to be recovering from their injuries.

The school's principal announced last week that the bus stop where the accident occurred has been moved out of respect for the victims and their families and to be sensitive to all students using that stop.
