13-year-old hit by car while walking home from school in Del Ray

A 13-year-old boy is fine after being hit by a car while crossing the street in Del Ray on Thursday afternoon, August 26.

The boy was walking home from George Washington Middle School when he was struck. He was transported to the hospital, and has since been cleared, police told ALXnow. The driver stayed at the scene and was not charged with anything.

“School is back in session, and drivers need to be more aware and cautious with more kids out in the streets,” said Alexandria Police senior public information officer Amanda Paga.

Paga also said parents need to remind their children to look both ways before crossing the street.
