Update: 2 Garinger students struck by truck

By Kaila Lee

An update is available on the two students injured in the accident Monday morning in front of the school.

The accident involved a 15-year-old girl and a 16-year-old boy. The 15 year old female will hopefully be released today (Thursday) and the 16 year old boy is still being hospitalized with severe head injuries.

On Monday, the two Garinger students were hit by the trailer of a pickup truck on their way to school. The students were avoiding the crosswalk and crossed the street when the lights turned green. The street the two students crossed were at the intersection of Eastway and Sugar Creek, which is notorious for 65 crashes in the last 5 years, and what fatally killed a student about 3 years ago, Brittany Palmer.

 

On the news, the male victim’s mother said that her son thought the street was clear. The driver is not being charged against the accident of both the students.
