Bicyclist struck near Cary High School
CARY, N.C. (WTVD) -- A 17-year-old student at Cary High School was rushed to hospital Tuesday afternoon.
Police say Islom Juraev was riding his bicycle across the pedestrian crosswalk on Walnut Street when a car hit him.
He was rushed to WakeMed where he was last listed in fair condition with a broken leg.
Cary police have not completed their investigation into the accident.
It's not the first time a student was hit by a car at the same location. According to Cary High School's principal, there have been three other similar incidents in the last two years.
The school and local parents are lobbying the DOT to survey the area and see if there's enough foot and car traffic to warrant getting a flashing stoplight in front of the school, and if they get that the principal would look to get a crossing guard as well.
Meanwhile, police are monitoring the school zone and other school areas to catch and hand out tickets to people who are speeding or not stopping for pedestrians at crosswalks. That stepped up presence continues this week and next week in Cary.
