LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) – A Jefferson County Public School student is being treated for life threatening injuries after she was hit by a vehicle outside Valley High School. Police say she has severe head trauma.
The original call came in to 911 dispatchers 6:43 a.m. to the intersection of Valley Station Road and Dixie Highway. Police say a 17-year-old student was crossing Dixie Highway, on her way to school, when she was hit by a red minivan going southbound on Dixie Highway.
Officers say the driver had the green light and speed was not a factor.
Witnesses said the girl was unable to speak as she was being loaded into an ambulance. Pam Jessee saw the crash, saying, "It hit her and she flew up and all I could see was her go up [in the air] like a rag doll, she hit the ground."
After the crash, Jessee said the driver stopped the vehicle and ran to the girl's side to assist her.
