A McKeesport Area High School student who was injured by a car on Eden Park Boulevard on Wednesday morning was back in class Thursday, a spokesperson said.

Neither school officials nor McKeesport police would identify the student or release their class year.

A district spokesperson said the unidentified student stepped from behind a parked car near the entrance to the high school at about 6:25 a.m. Wednesday and was struck. Start time at the high school is 7:22 a.m.

The accident happened about 35 minutes before students generally start arriving, and flashing yellow "school zone" lights designed to slow traffic on Eden Park were not yet lit, the district said.

The student was taken by ambulance to a local hospital where they were treated for their injuries and released, the district said.

No further information was released.
