For the second time in a month, a Wayzata High School student has been hit by a car right outside the school.

In both cases, it was a runner crossing the street.

Both teens survived, but one suffered severe injuries.

The first crash happened on Sept. 7, just a few days after school started when a 14-year-old runner was hit by a 17-year-old driver outside the school. The victim was airlifted to the hospital with serious injuries.

A month and a day later, another runner was struck, this time by an adult sitting at an intersection waiting to leave the high school parking lot.

“At low speeds as they started, the runner stepped off the curb in front of the car,” said Plymouth Police Deputy Chief Erik Fadden.

With two pedestrian accidents during the first month of school, police and the high school told 5 EYEWITNESS NEWS they will not wait to make changes.
