TWIN FALLS, Idaho (KMVT/KSVT) — On Thursday morning there was a pedestrian versus vehicle accident at Twin Falls High School.

“The student was in the crosswalk and a vehicle driven by a 79-year-old male was (traveling eastbound Filer St. ((SIC)) and due to the bright sun in the early morning this time of year the gentleman said he did not see the student and struck the student,” said SGT Coronado.
