N. Fourth St. (at E. Dayton St.)

Details

A Madison East High School student was injured while skateboarding in the roadway this afternoon. Part of the 16-year-old's body ended up under a Head Start school bus, and was run over. He appears to have suffered non life-threatening injuries. It is not clear how the student ended up colliding with the bus. The driver heard a thud, and stopped on N. Fourth St. The preliminary investigation indicates the driver was not at fault. It is illegal to ride a skateboard in the roadway, unless you are crossing the road at a crosswalk.
