Police in Anaheim, Calif., say a high school cross-country team was running when a turning car whacked one of the runners. The young woman was apparently determined because she got back up and started running.

STEVE INSKEEP, HOST:

Good morning. I'm Steve Inskeep.

It is definitely wrong to hit and run, but it's a little impressive that a high school student was hit and kept running. Anaheim, California police say a high school cross country team was running when a turning car whacked one of the runners. The young woman was apparently determined, because she got backed up and ran away. The driver called after her to stop, stayed where he was and called police. The runner was eventually treated and suffered only minor injuries.

It's MORNING EDITION.
