A Ponca City Public School student was hit by a vehicle around 7 a.m.  Friday.

The accident occurred north of the cross walk at Grand Avenue and Waverly Street. The student was taken by ambulance to Alliance Health.

Ponca City Police and ambulance both responded and found a 10-year-old boy had been struck by a vehicle as he crossed the street just north of Grand on Waverly. Police officers and EMTs rendered aid, and the boy was transported to Alliance Medical Center by Ponca City Fire Department ambulance.

Last word was that he would be transferred to another hospital due to the extent of his injuries. Accident reconstructionists from the Ponca City Police Department are investigating the accident.

Ponca City Public Schools said a crossing guard was on duty; however, the student crossed north of the intersection outside of the crosswalk area.

Crisis teams are on site at Lincoln to assist with student and staff needs.
