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.
