RHAM Middle School Teacher Struck By Car at School Has Died

A RHAM Middle School teacher who was struck by a car outside the school two weeks ago has died, according to Superintendent Bob Siminiski.

Dawn Mallory-Bushor, of Groton, was a 7th grade math teacher at the middle school in Hebron. She was 65-years-old.

She was critically injured on March 14th, after a parent who was dropping off her children at RHAM High School backed into her in the school lot.

According to the town manager, the woman was leaving the parking lot and drove into the bus lane from the middle school. When she realized she was in the bus lane, she abruptly backed up and hit Mallory-Bushor.

Police identified the driver as a 50-year-old Hebron woman. The crash is under investigation and no charges have been filed.

Just days after the crash, RHAM Middle School increased security and evaluated the traffic pattern on campus .  The superintendent also met with a civil engineer who will study the traffic flow and make recommendations.

A resident state trooper is also stationed in front of the school for security.

Mallory-Bushor, had been a teacher for 31 years, according to a RHAM Middle School Web site. 

Grief counselors will be available at the middle school on Monday.
