KNOXVILLE (WATE) - A pedestrian was hit by a vehicle Friday morning while crossing a street near Fulton High School.

John Sharp, 23, was hit while crossing East Woodland Avenue near Broadway around 7:13 a.m.

He was hit by a 2010 Dodge van driven by Carol Morris.

Sharp was walking into the driveway of Fulton High School when Morris turned into the driveway and hit him.
