A 17-year-old male was hit by a car this morning in the 4700 block of Norcross Road as he was crossing the road to board a school bus, according to a news release.

The victim was waiting at the corner of Metro Drive and Norcross Road.

The southbound school bus pulled up and stopped with its emergency lights activated and the stop sign extended.

As the victim started to cross the road, a northbound vehicle sped past him, but did not hit him. The victim again tried to cross the road when a second vehicle sped through the stop sign, hitting the victim, the release said.

The driver of the vehicle was indentified as Stephen Stewart, 36, and was cited with a stop sign violation. Officers have not located the first vehicle yet.

The victim was transported to a local hospital with nonlife-threatening injuries.

The Chattanooga Police Department asks that citizens pay close attention when driving before and after school.
