Vehicle hits Mead student walking to school
A Mead High School student was struck by a vehicle on her way into school this morning.
Spokane County sheriff’s Deputy Craig Chamberlin said the girl was taken to a local hospital but her injuries were not life-threatening.
He said the Chevrolet Tahoe that hit her on West Hastings Road was driven by an adult woman. It is not yet known who was at fault, Chamberlin said.
There is a crosswalk in the area but it is unclear where the girl was when she was hit.
The girl’s name and age were not available.
