    Car hits Briar Woods student

    A Briar Woods High School student was hit by a car Sept. 30 at the intersection of Ryan Road and Belmont Ridge Road in Ashburn.

    The 17-year-old girl was on her way to school at 8:30 a.m. she was hit by a 2006 Toyota Avalon, driven by an Ashburn woman. The driver was making a right turn from Ryan Road onto Belmont Ridge Road and failed to yield the right of way to the pedestrian. The teenager was crossing the street legally on a crosswalk when she was struck.

    The vehicle was traveling at a low speed, and the teenager suffered minor injuries. She was taken to Inova Loudoun Hospital for treatment and was released later that day. The driver received a traffic summons for failure to yield the right of way to a pedestrian within a crosswalk.

    This is the second incident this school year in which students walking to school have been hit by a vehicle. On Sept. 12, two middle school students were hit by a bus on their way to Belmont Ridge Middle School. The students were not utilizing the nearby crosswalk.

    Additionally, three Loudoun County Public School buses have been involved in vehicular accidents. On Sept. 12, a bus carrying one kindergartner on Lenah Woods Drive sideswiped a car. Not even two weeks later, on Sept. 20, a bus transporting students to Mountain View Elementary School in Purcellville drove off the road through a fence before crashing into a tree. Three days after the incident in Purcellville, a bus and a truck sideswiped each other on Snickersville Turnpike.

    I just read another story where LCPS has a safety person… 3 kids hit in less than a month.


    Wait…I thought the kids at the middle school actually ran into the bus and they darted thru traffic (not in a crosswalk)


    Current count for those keeping score: Bus riders 16; walkers 3.
