Pedestrian accident at Spring Hill ISD

Statement released by Spring Hill ISD Superintendent, Wes Jones:

Dear Parents and Community,

This morning, October 13,  a male freshman band student was hit by a male junior student driver in the parking lot about 7:25am. He is alright and was talking with his parents before entering the ambulance. He has scratches, bruises, and was shaken up, but no broken bones according to the hospital report. The accident is still under investigation, but according to the police officer making the report the band student was rushing over to the JH band hall to get percussion equipment and ran out in front of the vehicle without looking. The student driver wasn't speeding, but had no time to react. The student driver was visibly stunned and upset from the ordeal.

We are so thankful that this accident wasn't any more serious. Please be careful during the morning and afternoon pickup. We have many students in many activities, so drive with caution when driving through our parking lot for the safety of our students.

Each campus has plans to make announcements to all students and faculty about pedestrian safety. Our police officer and administrative team have met this morning to review and study additional pedestrian safety for all our campuses.

Sincerely,

Wes Jones
