Raleigh, N.C. — A Campbell University student who was hit by a charter bus last week remained hospitalized Thursday in serious condition, offiicials said.
William Lawrence, a freshman from Belmont, was admitted to WakeMed in critical condition following the April 11 accident on U.S. Highway 421 in Buies Creek.
Lawrence was injured when he crossed the road about 3 p.m. and was struck by the bus, which was carrying workers with the North Carolina Grower’s Association from Kinston to Vass.
University officials said the driver told investigators that Lawrence did not look toward the bus as he was crossing and that the driver didn’t see him until it was too late.
