— A Cary High School student suffered minor injuries Wednesday when she was struck by a car near the school.

The unidentified student was walking away from the school at a pedestrian crosswalk near the intersection of Walnut Street and Maynard Road when she was struck by a blue Dodge Neon, authorities said.

Charges are pending against the driver, and the student was taken to a local hospital as a precaution.

Sgt. Greg Savage with the Cary police said the crosswalk is relatively new to the area of campus and was put in place as a result of other accidents there.
