Mt. Hebron Student Hit By Car

School officials say the high school student was near her bus stop.

A Mt. Hebron High School student was taken to the hospital this morning after being hit by a car, according to school officials. 

According to an email sent by the Howard County Public School System, the student was near her bus stop.

Howard County Police say a 15-year-old girl was running across Town and Country Boulevard near West Springs Drive at about 6:55 a.m. when she was hit by a car. 

The girl was taken to Howard County General Hospital with minor injuries, according to police, and has been released. Police say the preliminary investigation does not indicate any fault on the part of the driver; no charges have been filed. 

Students at Mt. Hebron were told that if they were having “a difficult time” with the news of the incident, they could receive help from counselors.

So sorry for the girl. This may have been an unfortunate case of someone who needed to be a bit more aware of traffic before crossing the street, as well as the driver being more aware of people crossing the road. However, I live in a residential neighborhood very close to Mt. Hebron High. Even though the speed limit is 25 mph, and there are speed bumps, not to mention stop signs; there is quite of bit of speeding along these residental roads, and NOT STOPPING at the stop signs. NOT EVEN SLOWING DOWN! It's people on cellphones, not all of them teens or young adults. Dads and Moms driving SUVs and vans are just as guilty! I saw a woman walking her dog the other day that a speeding driver going around the curve nearly hit them. What can we get the police and neighborhood associations to do about this!
