GREENWOOD, SC (FOX Carolina) -
Troopers have charged the driver of a sport utility vehicle that they said hit a Greenwood High School student Thursday morning.
The Highway Patrol said the crash happened about 7:40 a.m. along East Northside Drive, and the male teen was flown to an area hospital.
Greenwood School District 50 said the student was hit at the intersection of Cokesbury Road/Highway 254 and East Northside Drive while walking to school.
The driver was headed south on Highway 254 taking her son to school when she turned left onto Northside Drive, hitting the pedestrian, troopers said.
School district officials said the student suffered multiple injuries.
"I am very concerned for the safety of this young man," Superintendent Darrell Johnson stated. "I have the student and family in my prayers. The safety of our students is always our greatest concern. We will keep them in our prayers."
Troopers said they charged Samantha O'Dell with failure to yield the right of way.
