Police said the crossing guard called authorities about the accident and said a child was hit by a car. Officials said the 7-year-old student was actually in the back seat of the car when the driver hit another vehicle.
Officials said it happened around 7:45 a.m. Wednesday on Barremore at Hackley in southeast Houston.
The child is a student at Henderson Elementary.
An ambulance responded to the scene to look over the child, but the student was not transported to the hospital.
Houston police and HISD officials responded to the accident.
