Paramedics rushed a student to the hospital after an accident that occurred around 3:30 p.m. Monday, on the corner of Seventh Street and James Avenue.
Officials at the scene of the accident said a student driving a car collided with another student driving a moped. Emergency medical services and two Waco police officers responded.
No names were given at the scene of the accident.
“He went to the hospital but we don’t know the extent of his injuries,” Charlotte Matthews, an officer at the Waco Police Department said.
The driver of the car was uninjured and remained at the scene to talk with officials.
The two students were the only ones involved with the accident and the scene was cleared quickly.
According to the Washington Post, 4,610 motorcyclists died in 2013 due to motorcycle-related injuries.
The advice to motorists from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, is to safely “share the road” with motorcycles and be extra alert to help keep motorcyclists safe. Motorcyclists are reminded to make themselves visible to other motorists.
The condition of the student was unknown Monday night.
