A freshman student at Harnett Central High School required transport to a local hospital for the personal injuries he sustained after walking in front of a car near a bus stop close to Lillington.
According to Trooper Larry Whitaker, 15-year-old Aaron Howell was crossing Summerville Mamers Road near his home at approximately 7 a.m. as his bus neared. Wilkes said he apparently didn’t see the car and stepped in front of it.
No charges are expected to be filed against Edward Spearman, the driver of the car.
According to Whitaker, Howell seemed to have suffered a broken leg, but remained conscious. He was taken to Betsy Johnson Regional Hospital in Dunn.
