LUDOWICI — A student was hit by a car as he was crossing McDonald Street Tuesday morning, but was apparently not injured badly.
According to Ludowici Police Chief Richard Robertson the child was hit at about 8 a.m. yesterday in front of the Long County Board of Education office.
Georgia State Patrol Trooper J. Wilson said the student is 13-year-old boy.
The trooper reported that according to a witness, Teresa Davis, 33, was driving her 2007 Dodge Charger slowly south on McDonald, which is also Highway 57, when the student darted out in front of her.
Wilson said the accident occurred in a school zone, but that the student was not in the correct crosswalk.
Long County EMS took the child to Wayne Memorial Hospital in Jesup.
Wilson said, “Parents need to make sure that they tell their kids to use the crosswalk areas when they are going across a street, whether it is near a school or anywhere else.”
According to a Wayne Memorial Hospital spokesman, the student was treated and released Tuesday.
