A male St. Thomas student was struck by a silver minivan while crossing the street at the corner of Summit and Cretin avenues around 10:45 a.m. Monday.
St. Paul police officers and an ambulance were called to the scene. A police officer said the student was “conscious and speaking.” He was taken by ambulance to United hospital in St. Paul, but Jim Winterer, director of Media Relations, said the student walked into the ambulance on his own and the injuries did not appear to be serious.
Winterer said witnesses reported the minivan had a green light, but the student stepped into the crosswalk and the vehicle “dinged his knee.”
