An East Tennessee State University student was hit by a WJHL news vehicle this morning.

The Johnson City, Tenn., CBS affiliate reported the incident, saying the employee driving the vehicle was cited for failing to yield to a pedestrian.

“Around 11 Thursday morning, a News Channel 11 employee bumped into a person walking across the street,” reports the station. “The accident was slow speed and the student wasn’t seriously injured, but did to go the hospital to be checked out.”
