Superintendant Janet Sifferman and Hartland Schools released a statement today regarding the accident in the high school parking lot involving a 16-year-old driver and a 51-year-old security guard.
"We are saddened by the accident that occurred at Hartland High School the afternoon of May 15th involving a student and an employee. Our thoughts and prayers are with our employee and her family. This is an ongoing investigation with the Livingston County Sheriff’s Department."
The name of the security guard who was hit yesterday by a teen driver while exiting school grounds has been released today.
Susan Hazzard, 51, is listed in stable yet serious condition according to Livingston County Sheriff Bob Bezotte.
Although Hazzard is still suffering some complications such a convulsions and throwing up which may be due to the head trauma, according to Bezotte, but she is improving.
Hazzard, who was struck by a in the Hartland High School parking lot was transported to the University of Michigan hospital on Tuesday afternoon.
Charges will be pressed against the Hartland High School student. Speed and drugs are suspected of having a part of the accident, according to Bezotte.
"Speed is a factor as well as possible marijuana use since we found marijuana in the car," he said. "But that has to be verified."
The student was given a drug test yesterday after the accident and released to his parents, according to Bezotte. The results from those tests could take 3-6 weeks.
The prosecutor is aware of the case, but Bezotte says they now have some time to wait for the results from the tests.
“We’re going to have a license review in Lansing to take his license away from him,” Bezotte said. “At least have it suspended until this case is over.”
