— An Apex High student was struck by a car while running to catch the school bus Friday morning, a Wake schools spokesman said.

Spokesman Greg Thomas said the bus made its usual stop at Holt Road and Daleshire Drive, but the student wasn't there. The driver started to pull off, but saw the student in the rear-view mirror, stopped again and turned on the lights.

A car that had originally stopped for the bus started to move again and struck the student, Thomas said.

The student, whose identity wasn't released, had scratches and bruises and was taken to a local hospital to be checked out.

Thomas said that no charges are expected to be filed.
