CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) - Emergency personnel say two Charlotte high school students were hit by a car as they walked to class.

Local media outlets report Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police said the students were on their way to Garinger High School Monday morning when they were struck shortly after 7 a.m.

Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools spokesman Brian Hacker said one student was taken to the hospital with potentially life-threatening injuries, while the second student was taken to the hospital with injuries not believed to be life-threatening.

It’s the latest traffic accident involving Charlotte-Mecklenburg students. In August, two West Charlotte High students were struck crossing the same road in separate incidents within a week. In October, an Albemarle Road Middle School student suffered broken bones after being hit by a car while crossing the road.
