Crosswalks: they're painted in school zones to keep your kid safe, but are students using them?

It's a question many parents may be asking themselves after a car struck a Midland Lee teen just after lunch on Tuesday.

The student crossed Godfrey, but didn't use the crosswalk.

She was taken to the hospital with minor injuries.

The driver was questioned and released.

District police say the accident highlights the need for students to use common sense, and students who are caught blocking traffic will be ticketed.
