ALLIANCE, Ohio -Police say an Alliance High School student jogging home was struck and killed by a car driven by a teacher.
Alliance Police Chief Lawrence Dordea says a preliminary investigation suggests 15-year-old Alison Draves was listening to an MP3 player when she crossed the street and was struck by a car driven by John Hampu, a social studies teacher at the school.
The accident occurred at about 8 p.m. Monday, and Draves died the next day.
Dordea says the girl was running with the flow of traffic on a street with no sidewalks.
Hampu told authorities he was driving about 25 miles per hour when he heard a noise and stopped, thinking he had hit a bird.
No charges have been filed, and police will forward the investigation's results to the city prosecutor.
