From Dr. George McFarland, SISD Superintendent on December 5, 2017 -
This morning shortly before 7:00 am, one of our Sweetwater High School students was struck by a motor vehicle while the student was attempting to cross a street. The accident occurred at Lamar Street close to Sweetwater Middle School where the tennis courts are located. Police and medical personnel were alerted to the scene immediately, and the decision was made to care flight the student to Abilene for further treatment. Parents were also notified and were present at the scene. The student was in stable condition as she was transported via helicopter this morning. As a district, we appreciate your prayers for this student and the family.
