A worker in a crosswalk at Kings Park High School was struck by a car on Friday morning, the district superintendent said, on last day of school before the holiday recess.

The employee suffered non-life-threatening injuries; she was taken to Stony Brook University Hospital for evaluation, superintendent Timothy T. Eagen said in a statement.

The driver had just dropped off a student at the school when the incident occurred just before 9 a.m. in the front crosswalk of the lower parking lot, he said.

Eagen explained he had posted the brief description of the incident on the school website because a “large amount of misinformation” was published on social media.

A Suffolk County police spokeswoman confirmed the employee, a woman, was hit in the crosswalk. There was no criminality, the spokeswoman said.

Fourth Squad detectives are investigating.
