Update on Chancellor Middle student
The Chancellor Middle School student struck by a car on Harrison Road yesterday remained in critical condition this morning at Inova Fairfax Hospital, his stepfather said.
The 12-year-old seventh grader was airlifted yesterday after he was struck by the car about 2:45 p.m. He underwent surgery last night, Spotsylvania Sheriff’s Lt. Col. Mike Timm said.
The boy apparently ran onto Harrison Road near Meadow Park Drive and was struck by an oncoming car, Timm said.
Timm was still gathering details this morning but said the driver of the vehicle is a 35-year-old Fredericksburg man. He said several other drivers witnessed the accident.
As of this morning, Timm did not expect charges to be brought against the driver of the vehicle that struck the student.
