SAN ANGELO, Texas — UPDATE: (12:20 p.m.) According to a release from the San Angelo Police Department, a 15-year-old Lake View High School student was transported to Shannon Medical Center with injuries after she was struck by two vehicles during the morning drop-off at Lake View High School.
The crash happened before 8 a.m. Wednesday as the student exited a 2009 Chevrolet HHR, that was properly stopped adjacent to the curb. As she crossed in front of the vehicle, a 2004 Honda CRV that was approaching the HHR from behind, collided with the HHR’s back left side.
The force of the collision pushed the HHR into the student, knocking the student to the ground in the roadway. The CRV continued traveling and ran over the girl’s lower extremities.
According to the release, the student was treated for minor injuries and has been released.
The driver of the Chevy HHR, a 62-year-old female, was issued a citation for expired registration. The driver of the CRV, a 20-year-old female, was cited for no Driver’s license and failure to control speed.
A preliminary crash investigation showed excessive speed was not a factor in Wednesday morning’s crash; however, one driver told police her vision was limited because of the position of the sun.
The department reminds drivers to use extra caution in school zones, and to be mindful of environmental conditions that could cause decreased visibility.
