Teen hit by car while running

A Walnut High School senior was struck by a car moving west while crossing La Puente Road just before 4 p.m. on Thursday evening, Feb. 19.

The 17-year-old was running as a part of after-school athletic activities when he attempted to cross the street in an area without a crosswalk.

The approximate location of the incident, positioned at the top of the hill near Walnut United Methodist Preschool, has seen a number of accidents in the past.

The teen was transported to a local university hospital where he is receiving medical treatment and was reported to be in stable condition.
