Sherwood teen hit by car on way to class

Sherwood police have cited a driver after he allegedly struck a high school student crossing the road near Sherwood High School on Thursday morning.

It was about 7:30 a.m., Thursday, Dec. 10, when the high school student was struck, said Captain Ty Hanlon with the Sherwood Police Department.

The students name and age weren't released, but Hanlon said that the student was attempting to cross Southwest Dewey Drive at Meinecke Road, two blocks from Sherwood High School.

The student was in the crosswalk, Hanlon said. The teen was injured and taken to a local hospital. His condition is not currently known.

Hanlon said that the teen was wearing dark clothing at the time of the crash. Poor visability due to the weather and limited light are believed to have been factors.

The driver of the vehicle claimed he didn't see the pedestrian, Hanlon said. He was determined to be at fault and cited.
