It can be difficult, and sometimes kids aren't always watching. But a reminder so make sure you're head is on a swivel when you're driving.

High school student struck by car in Kennewick Wednesday (Kennewick police)

Kennewick police reported Wednesday morning a Kamiakin student escaped serious injury after being struck by a motorist near the roundabout at 4th. and Union, during the morning hours.

Police say the student was not seriously hurt, and after parents were notified and arrived, they left with them.

Police say pay extra close attention, especially around school areas.  4th. and Union, like many areas, is a corridor traveled heavily by kids going to both Kamiakin and Highlands Middle School in Kennewick.
