A Gov. Thomas Johnson High School student was struck by a car Friday morning near North Frederick Elementary School, according to a FindOutFirst email from Frederick County Public Schools. 

Emergency personnel responded and the student was transported to receive medical care.

Rumors that a North Frederick Elementary student was also involved are untrue. Since the crash occurred at arrival time at the elementary school, some students may have witnessed it. 

The school's counselor and social worker were available on Friday to support students and families as needed. 

The TJ High student's injuries were not life-threatening, and the student's family was notified soon after the crash.

Would have been nice to know who was at fault, the student or the driver?
