Midwest City-Del City students struck by car cited in accident

DEL CITY — Police said three Midwest City-Del City Public Schools students who were struck by a car were at fault and have been cited for the incident.

The female sophomore students were hit about 10:30 a.m. Wednesday in the 1900 block of Sunnylane Road in front of Del City High School while heading to restaurants across the street.

Police Capt. Jody Suit said Monday that all three students have been cited for failure to yield to oncoming vehicles and failure to use a crosswalk. The driver of the vehicle was not at fault, he said.

Fire Maj. Brandon Pursell said the students were crossing in the school zone, but not on a crosswalk. He said two of the students were taken to a nearby hospital; both were conscious and alert, he said. A third student was released to her parents.
