CAMERON, TX — A student is going to be OK after being hit by a vehicle walking home from school on Wednesday.

The school district said a Cameron ISD student was walking home from school and was involved in an automobile/ pedestrian accident. The student did sustain minor injuries, but is doing fine.

Superintendent Kevin Sprinkles said the district would like to encourage parents to speak with their children about being cautious on the streets as they walk home from school.

"We would also like to encourage all drivers to please drive cautiously on our city streets as school is back in session and many of our students walk to and from school everyday," said Sprinkles.
