“It has been one of the busiest unsafe intersections in this area. And nothing got done about it. We have students going to school, we have buses coming in. It’s unacceptable that this happened,” complained a parent.
In a statement to parents and staff the school said, in part:
“This morning, 4 of our students, awaiting the arrival of their school bus, were struck by the driver of a passing car. All four students are hospitalized. Out of respect for, and in the interest of the privacy of the families involved, I am unable to share any further information about this accident.”
As of the time of the report, police had not charged the driver with a crime.
