No charges for driver who struck Humble Middle School student Friday

The boy said he was walking home from school when he was hit near Woodland Hills Drive.

HUMBLE, Texas — A young student was struck by a car outside Humble Middle School Friday afternoon.

Precinct 4 Constable Mark Herman said the driver kept going. He later tweeted they had identified the driver and no charges would be filed. Herman didn't elaborate.

The 12-year-old boy was taken to Kingwood Medical Center to be checked out and later released. 

"Fortunately, there were not life-threatening injures and he is expected to recover," a Humble ISD spokesperson said in a statement. 

The boy was walking home from school around 3:30 p.m. when he was hit near Woodland Hills Drive and Will Clayton Parkway.

On Thursday, a 5-year-old kindergartner in Houston was almost hit when a car blew past a school bus that had it's stop sign out and lights flashing.

The little girl's mother saw the car and screamed, "No! Wait, wait, wait!," just in time, likely preventing a tragedy.
