Car hits teen in front of Taylorsville High

TAYLORSVILLE -- A teenager was hit by a car directly in front of Taylorsville High School Wednesday morning.

"He was in the crosswalk," said Taylorsville police Sgt. Tracy Wyant. "It's unclear as to the light's color and so forth, but it does appear he was in the intersection."

The car that hit the 17-year-old boy was southbound on Redwood Road at 5225 South in an inner lane. It happened around 8 a.m.

Police said there are conflicting statements about the color of the traffic light when the accident happened.

Wyant said the teen was taken to the hospital in fair condition.
