A RHAM Middle School teacher is in critical condition after being struck by a car outside the school this morning, according to authorities.
Police and school officials identified the victim as Dawn Mallory-Bushor, 65, of Groton, a 7th grade math teacher at the middle school.
Hebron's town manager said a parent was dropping her children off at RHAM High School when she struck Mallory-Bushor.
Police identified the driver as a 50-year-old Hebron woman. The crash is under investigation and no charges have been filed.
The woman was leaving the parking lot and drove into the bus lane from the middle school, according to the town manager. When she realized she was in the bus lane, she abruptly backed up and hit Mallory-Bushor.
Police are questioning the driver and she is cooperating.
"We want to share with you about the accident that occurred this morning. During the morning drop off, Dawn Mallory was involved in an accident. She has been taken to the hospital for treatment. No one else was injured in this accident. We will share information about her recovery when available," a message of the school's Web site says.
It is too early to tell how fast the car was going, according to state police.
State police said Mallory-Bushor's injuries are life-threatening.
She has been a teacher for 31 years, according to a RHAM Middle School Web site.
