Perry Middle School Student Injured in Carrollton, TX, Accident

Carrollton, TX -- February 15, 2017, a Perry Middle School student was injured as the result of an accident where he was hit by an SUV.

Carrollton Police and emergency crews rushed to the scene just outside the school, located at 1709 E Belt Line Road.

According to preliminary reports, the 13-year-old boy and other people were outside the school as an SUV was driving past. The driver apparently suffered a seizure while he was driving, and it caused him to swerve off-road and hop the curb.

The SUV struck the boy and hit a brick sign before coming to a stop. The boy was reportedly trapped by the debris, and nearby witnesses helped free him.

Following the incident, the student was taken to a nearby hospital with serious injuries. Police say the man driving the SUV did not have a license, and he was cited for that. It's unclear if the man's medical condition and his lack of a license are related. There was also an infant in the vehicle with him, but no injuries were reported.

Police say that no charges have been filed at this time. Their investigations are ongoing.
