The crash happened one block west of where a Walter Johnson High School student was seriously injured while crossing the street to board his school bus last year.

On Dec. 12, the 17-year-old student was crossing Montrose Road at Bargate Court when he was hit by a Jeep Renegade that did not stop for the bus’s outstretched stop signal.

He sustained serious injuries in the crash.
