Student hit by car in crosswalk near high school

Posted: Updated:

A student was hit by a car in front of Rex Putnam High School in Milwaukie Wednesday.

It happened as students were released from school around 3:20 p.m. at the intersection of Southeast Roethe Road and Gordon Street.

The Clackamas Co. Sheriff's Office says the victim, a girl at the school, was taken to OHSU for a possible concussion and other injuries. It says the driver of the car, a boy at the school, stayed at the scene and cooperated with the investigation.

Investigators say the driver failed to stop at a stop sign and yield to a pedestrian in a marked crosswalk. Deputies say he will likely face reckless driving charges.
