Student struck by car outside Cary High School

Staff writerAugust 27, 2013 

A Cary High School student was struck by a vehicle outside the school about 2:45 p.m. Tuesday, the second day of class for the school year.

Islom Juraer, 17, was riding a bicycle across Walnut Street via a crosswalk when he was hit by a driver named Kylie Graves, according to Deanna Boone, a town spokeswoman. Graves’ age has not been released, but she is not a Cary High School student; she was driving a red Volkswagen Jetta, Boone said.

No citations or charges had been issued to the driver as of 5:30 p.m., Boone said.

Emergency services brought Juraer to WakeMed in Raleigh with non-life-threatening injuries.

Police shut down Walnut Street in all directions for 20 minutes after the accident, and the street’s eastbound lanes remained closed for another hour.

Police are continuing their investigation. It was unclear whether the student had crossed during the appropriate phase of a nearby traffic signal.
