    A teenager waiting for the bus wound up in the hospital this morning after being struck by a car.

    The 14-year-old -- who wasn't identified since he is a minor -- was at the corner of E Lakeshore Drive near Castro Street in Browns Mills, Burlington County, N.J. when he was struck around 7:15 a.m., according to Pemberton Township Police Chief David Jantas.

    The teen, believed to be a ninth grader, suffered bruising to his head, arm, hip and leg. He was taken by ambulance to a local hospital and released, Jantas said.

    The child was struck in a residential neighborhood surrounded by trees. It wasn't clear why the teen was crossing the street when he was hit. It also wasn't clear if the bus was anywhere nearby at the time.

    The unidentified driver stopped and was cooperating, according to police.
