A Monterey High School student was hit by a car Friday morning as he was crossing 50th street.
A driver called 9-1-1.
"Yeah, a kid just got hit outside Monterey. What happened? He was walking across the street to go to the store and a car just smacked into him."
Captain Roy Bassett said, "Unfortunately a lot of the time what they do is cross half way, wait there in the median. then, kids being kids, sometimes they think they're faster than they are."
Police say the student wasn't crossing at the cross walk, and was hit by a car going east on 50th street.
He was rushed to the hospital with serious injuries, but is expected to make a full recovery.
