West Bay

EAST GREENWICH, R.I. (WPRI) — An investigation is underway after an East Greenwich High School student was hit by a vehicle in the school parking lot during afternoon dismissal on Monday.

Principal Kenneth Hopkins said first responders reported to the scene quickly and were able to provide immediate assistance on site.

The student was transported to the hospital with apparent minor injuries, according to Police Chief Col. Stephen Brown.

“We are additionally thankful for the quick reactions and concern of our students, parents, school nurse, and staff to assist at the scene,” Hopkins said in an email. “The concern on the part of the school community is noted, and is representative of the general care that Avengers have for each other.”

Brown said it doesn’t appear to be anything more than an accident but they are still looking into it.

For any students who are in need of support or assistance, school-based counseling services will be available.
