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.
