RANDLEMAN, N.C. — A 15-year-old Randleman High School student is in serious condition Tuesday after being struck by a vehicle.

The accident happened around 11:10 a.m. in front of the school at 4396 Tigers Den Road.

According to Trooper Knox, the student was on the bus with the baseball team leaving for a playoff game in Newport. The teen apparently forgot his cleats, so the bus pulled over in front of the school.

The teen ran around the front of the bus and was struck by a vehicle.

The student was later identified as Chase Webb.

Webb was airlifted to University of North Carolina Hospital in Chapel Hill where he is listed in serious condition.

School officials originally thought Webb had a skull fracture, but hospital officials say he doesn’t.

No charges against the driver are expected.

    I go to the Randleman Middle School and we all know the story at school We just hope and pray that he will be ok and be more safer next time

    i go to the HS and the tour bus pulled over on the side of the road at the school and the kid got off and walked in front of the bus and continued onto the road and the car struck him at about 30mph and he was tossed over the top of the car hit the ground (the teen went to go get his cleats for the playoff game) and then he was airlifted to The Hospital

    It should not be Holiday Tours bus fault. Teaçhers and coaches were on that bus that allowed him to disembàrk. Sadly, when he got off he didnt look to see if anything was coming. Something that many of us do ourselves sometimes. We are glad it wasnt more serious and Our prayers are with him for a speedy recovery.

      I wouldn’t necessarily disagree with you but a public school bus driver is not supposed to allow students to get off of the bus like that. Exiting a bus (with no stop arm) would be considered an unsafe. That was a really dangerous thing to do even if Chase had been more careful. They really should have either called someone to bring the cleats, made him sit out of the game or returned the bus to the school campus. While it would not have been convenient to do either of the three options, it would have been safer.
