Updated on: 11/8/2019A child was hit while walking in a crosswalk, on his way to school around 8:10 a.m. Surprisingly, the boy got right back up and did not cry. He was taken to the hospital for precautionary reasons.
The child ran ahead to catch up with his mother when he was hit. No tickets were issued to the driver because he wasn’t speeding or found in error.
However, there was concern about the dangers of the area in the morning. As required by law, there are signs warning of the school crossing 50 feet before the crosswalk to get cars to slow down.
The principal says throughout her two years with the school, there hasn’t been any other pedestrian accidents with children being hit.
This is another reminder to make sure your child is always taking its time when walking on busy roads - always to look both ways and to acknowledge their surroundings. Before any accidents occur, talk to your children about safety.
