CLARKSVILLE, Tenn. (WSMV) – A middle school student in Clarksville was hit by a car Tuesday morning, according to the Clarksville Police Department.
Police responded to Richview Middle School at about 7:20 a.m. after receiving a call that a student crossing Richview Road was hit by a vehicle. Police said traffic was at a crawling pass when the 14-year-old boy was hit at Richview Road and Dewitt Drive, which is not the location of a crosswalk or crossing guard, according to police.
