A Pointe South Middle School student who was running for the school bus was issued a traffic citation after being hit by a car.
 
The Clayton County pedestrian accident occurred at about 8:15 a.m. on Wednesday, January 19, 2011.  A 14-year-old boy darted across the westbound lanes Pointe South Parkway in order to catch a school bus that was pulling up in the eastbound lanes. As he crossed, the boy was struck by a Saturn Sedan.
 
Witnesses say the teen dashed into the road and the vehicle had no time to stop.
 
The boy suffered cuts and bruises and was taken to Atlanta Medical Center as a precaution.  He was also cited on the charge of "pedestrian fleeing into traffic.”
