LHS Principal hit in auto-ped

Logan High School Principal Pat Hansen is home and resting comfortably after being hit this morning while crossing the street in front of the high school. Police Lt. Rod Peterson says Hansen was crossing southbound on foot when a westbound SUV, driven by 39-year old Maria Medina, struck her at approximately 7:24 a.m. Hansen was conscious as paramedics took her to the hospital. Logan School District spokesperson Robin Williams says Hansen was bruised and received a number of stitches, but suffered no broken bones or concussion. Williams says the accident happened at the height of drop-off time so there were numerous witnesses. She says Assistant Principal Kirk Allen made an announcement at the start of school, telling the students of the accident. A follow-up announcement was made a couple of hours later notifying students of Hansen’s good condition. Counselors were made available to students, since the accident was so visible. Williams talked with Hansen Friday afternoon and reported she feels surprisingly well. Lt. Peterson says Medina has been charged with negligent collision and no proof of insurance.
