Around 7:15 a.m. on Monday, the Evansville Police Department responded to a motor vehicle accident in front of Plaza Park School where a small truck had struck a pedestrian.

EPD says when officers arrived, they discovered that a teacher with the Evansville Vanderburgh School Corporation had been struck by the truck while helping kids cross in the school crossing zone.

According to police, the vehicle involved in the accident was moving at a low rate of speed, and the teacher wasn't severely injured, though the teacher was taken to the hospital by ambulance to be checked for minor bumps and bruising.

Police say the driver involved wasn't cited, as they weren't able to see the teacher in the roadway because of the glare of the sun.
