Robertson County Student Hit By Car, Recovering At Vanderbilt
WHITE HOUSE TENNESSEE: (Smokey Barn News) – A White House Heritage High School student is recovering at Vanderbilt Medical Children’s Hospital after he was struck by a vehicle while heading to the school bus.
Robertson County EMS confirmed they were dispatched to the intersection of Lone Oak and Stadium Dr. MAP at 7:10 this morning and transported a 13-year-old male to Vanderbilt Medical Children’s Hospital in Nashville with nonlife-threatening injuries.
“Robertson County Schools is aware that one of our White House Heritage High School students was struck by a private vehicle this morning while waiting to board a school bus. The student was transported to Vanderbilt and reports indicate the injuries are not life-threatening. Our thoughts and prayers are with the family at this time.” ROBERTSON COUNTY SCHOOLS
According to White House Police Chief Pat Brady, the student, according to his family, had no broken bones or internal injuries but did sustain some facial injuries. Chief Brady says the driver was ticketed for Exercising Due Care and having an unrestrained child in the vehicle.
A witness told Smokey Barn News that the student was walking across the street when the accident occurred and the driver was going very slow because it was near the stop. The bus was still rolling up. The student was able to “go inside” and call their parent and the bus driver called 911. The bus driver waited for the police to arrive.
We will continue to monitor this story but it would appear that the student will fully recover.
