It happened near Tallwood High School at the intersection of Kempsville Road and Lion's Way. At 6:51 a.m., police say the student attempted to cross the street before school zone flashing lights became active, which would have reduced the speed limit from 45 mph to 25 mph. Northbound traffic had the green light; the student attempted to cross, and was hit. 

Police say the student was transported to a local hospital with non-life threatening injuries. 

All lanes are now open on Kempsville Road.
