ASHLAND — A Hatcher Elementary School second-grader was seriously injured when he was hit by a car while waiting for a school bus Thursday morning, according to police and school officials.

Raymond Jones, 7, was struck around 7 a.m. in the 1500 block of Belmont Street, near the entrance to Ashland Cemetery, the Ashland Police Department said.

The youngster was attempting to walk across Belmont and was struck by a northbound vehicle driven by Frank Branham of Ashland. An APD news release described the boy’s injuries as “severe.” APD Maj. Todd Kelley said the youngster suffered head trauma.

Kelley said the boy was waiting for the school bus with some other children on the cemetery side of Belmont at a spot where the bus normally picks up students. For some unknown reason, the boy decided to cross over to the opposite side of the street and was hit as he stepped from the southbound to the northbound lane, he said.

Branham was not injured in the accident, police said.

Raymond was taken to King’s Daughters Medical Center for initial treatment and then flown to Cabell Huntington Hospital, said Ashland safe schools director Lisa Henson. Hatcher Principal David Greene and a school counselor also went to Cabell Huntington to talk to the boy’s family, she said.

Greene had spoken to Hatcher faculty and some students about the accident, Henson said.“It’s important to let kids know what’s going on so they have the correct information and aren’t frightened,” she said.

The accident remains under investigation, Kelley said. An accident reconstruction specialist was dispatched to the scene to recreate the incident, he said.

No criminal charges are expected to be filed in connection with the incident, police said.

Aww I will be praying for his family as well as for the family of the driver. I could not imagine losing a child like that. How sad.
Hug and kiss your children tonight and let them know how much you love them. Tomorrow may be too late.
He is in the palm of Heavenly Fathers hand now.

"Parent"
That is a sh*tty thing to say.
There are pillhead parents everywhere.

And just jumping to the conclusion that the child's parents were pillheads is immature. Not letting your child around children from that neighborhood? That's just straightup STUCKUP, and I'll tell you right now your child is a stupid b*tch waiting to happen. Get your head out of your a*s and send some prayer to the family instead of judging them. Imagine if people were saying that if it was YOUR child that had been killed!

You should be highly ashamed of yourself.

I feel really sorry for you. You have passed judgement on a family who is suffering a parents worse nightmare. Judgement is up to God, not you. My heart broke when I heard that this little boy passed away. So, I would be careful if I were you in judging something like this because you never know when you may face something terrible in life and have people blame you. You really need to think about that. As far as not letting your children be friends with children from 'that area', you are pathetic. My kids have always been friends whom they choose to be friends with, unless I see something that goes on or gives me cause for the concern of their safety I would never pre-judge a child or their family. You really need to re-think your attitude and realize that a little boy lost his life today, a family lost their child, this is a tragic accident that could have happened anywhere, even in your perfect neighborhood.
SO SORRY

I am so sorry to hear about the passing of this child. Anytime a child loses their life, it's HORRIBLE no matter what the circumstances. My thoughts and prayers go out to all involved.
amen

Exactly.
Whoever "parent" is, really needs to re-think what they said.
That was beyond messed up to say.

I'm curious...

I used to play baseball as a child behind the old school. It was located off Ferry and Hickman Streets to the best of my recollection.

The cemetary entrance was at the bottom of Belmont Street(again to the best of my recollection).

How does a child who apparently lives near, or on, Belmont Street attend an elementary school clear across town?

Some of the elementary schools are crowded and dont have enough teachers. If a family moves within town and the now-closer school is too crowded, they will allow that student to remain at their previous school. Buses for all elementary schools criss-cross all over town. That's just one example, though. I'm sure there could be more reasons.
