AUGUSTA, Ga. (WRDW) -- A judge granted the man accused of hitting and killing an elementary school student a $50,000 bond Friday.

Scott Hancock was in court for homicide by vehicle and reckless driving charges.

Hancock was driving a van when he hit 8-year-old Jaidyn Williams Dec. 9, 2013, the Richmond County Sheriff's Office said.

Prosecutors said Hancock ignored the stop sign on the school bus, and hit Jaidyn as he crossed Belair Road.
