A student was hit by a car and injured while crossing S. 152nd Street near Highline High School Monday morning, March 6.

According to Catherine Carbone Rogers of Highline Public Schools, the student was not using a crosswalk.

Medics transported the injured victim to the hospital with minor injuries.

As we previously reported Feb. 24, a hit and run accident tragically killed 73-year old school district employee April Fait nearby.

“Student safety is our top priority, and we encourage you to talk with your children about using caution even when crossing in a designated crosswalk,” Principal Vicki Fisher said.

Here’s the text of an email sent out by the district:

Dear Highline High School Families,

Student safety is our top priority, and we encourage you to talk with your children about using caution even when crossing in a designated crosswalk.

    The student actually was using the crosswalk.

    Perhaps it is time (past time?) for the City of Burien to make some changes to that street in front of the school. Photo enforcement of the school zone, speed bumps to slow the traffic down, etc. I know that when I have to be at Highline High School I NEVER park so that I have to cross the street. I will park over at the football field and walk the extra distance rather than endanger myself.

    Speed bumps are a great idea!

    Build speed bumbs. And a lighted Crosswalk, with cameras.
