Two Northwest High School Students Struck by Car

Two Northwest High School students were struck by a car Monday afternoon crossing Great Seneca Highway at Richter Farm Road, according to a statement from the school’s principal.

Principal Jimmy D’Andrea, on a message distributed on Twitter, said emergency responders took the students to a local hospital where they have non-life-threatening injuries.

The students were hit at 2:35 p.m., D’Andrea said.

A tweet from Montgomery County Fire and Rescue spokesman Pete Piringer said the incident blocked some lanes at Richter Farm Rd, Clopper Mill Rd and Great Seneca Highway.

Northwest High is at 13501 Richter Farm Road.

D’Andrea said the school administration was working with Montgomery County police to review the incident and “to ensure that all students are able to travel safely to and from school.”

This is the second time students have been struck by passing cars in about a week. On Oct. 9, four Kennedy High School students were hit when two cars collided on Georgia Avenue.

Here is D’Andrea’s message to the Northwest Community:

    Very scary – that’s a busy intersection. Any info on whether or not they were crossing with the walk signals?
