— A child was struck by a vehicle Thursday in front of Wake Forest-Rolesville Middle School, authorities said.

The unidentified student was riding his bicycle to school and a car hit the bike from behind, knocking the student to the pavement, said Bill Poston, spokesman for the Wake County school system.

Paramedics checked the boy, who suffered scrapes and bruises, and he was released to the custody of his parents, Poston said.

No charges were expected to be filed in the case, Poston said.
