A sixth-grade student at Southside School was involved in a pedestrian accident yesterday.
Authorities say the student was assisting a neighbor retrieve a trash can located near the roadway when the accident occurred.
Southside Schools Superintendent Roger Rich spoke with White River Now this morning and said that based on information he’s received, the child was released from medical care and sent home.
“We are extremely grateful for that,” Rich said. “We just wish him well, and hopefully, he’ll recover quickly. We’re gonna try to reach out and find a little more information today, but from all indications, what we’ve been told, he’s been released and came home. We’re extremely grateful for that and that no one was hurt any worse than they were.”
White River Now will update this story should authorities release new information.
