Three students have been struck by drivers on their walks to Montgomery County schools in recent weeks, and parents and pedestrian advocates want the district to do more to keep students safe. Reports from the school system show two students recently needed to be hospitalized after being hit by cars on their way to class. On March 10, a Montgomery Village Middle School student was hit and had to be transported to the hospital. A week later, on March 17, a Magruder High School student was hit and also transported to the hospital. On Feb. 2, a Clarksburg High School student was hit, but was not seriously injured and was able to continue to school.
