A Grovetown teen’s lower leg was run over by a vehicle when he fell while trying to cross Harlem-Grovetown Road on Tuesday.

Pablo Angel Lopez, 13, was crossing the road at Old Berzelia Road with a friend just before 3 p.m. The pair crossed the eastbound lane and stopped in the center of the road, where Pablo apparently slipped on some gravel, extending his leg into traffic.

A westbound GMC Jimmy, driven by Brandon Hutto, of Martinez, ran over Pablo’s foot or ankle, Rambo said.

The teen was taken to the Georgia Regents Medical Center.

Clumsy

It was a clumsy headline, CG. But it also was a clumsy run across the road.

A Frogger Fail

Jaywalking and highway crossing is a stunt that only requires you to risk your life each time you do it.

He is lucky only to have a broken leg/ankle and not a leg ripped off.

Get your story straight.

Unfortunately, your story is all wrong. Cars stopped and gave Angel the signal to pass. He and his friends crossed when Brandon went around the stopped cars not knowing that the kids were crossing. He hit Angel and Angel was thrown to the side. When I arrived at the scene, I overheard what all the main witness (the first car that stopped to let Angel cross) was telling the police my uncle (Angels father) and it DEFINITELY didn't include any tripping or anything of the sort. Brandon was also there while the main witness was explaining the story and I didn't hear him deny it. I understand it was an accident on Brandon's part, but if more then 2 cars are stopped, why go around them? Angel is okay now though, with a broken foot, badly scraped knees and a deep cut behind his knee. He's in a lot of pain but we're all just glad he's okay.
