Just before the Veteran’s Graduation Ceremony at McCallum today, a pedestrian was struck and killed by a car. According to a KXAN news report, the accident occurred in the parking lot between the gym and the theater, where the 83-year-old woman was pronounced deceased around 2 pm. She had been walking through the parking lot to the ceremony, where veterans were receiving belated diplomas. Students were not at school due to the holiday, but some staff members were witnesses.

Principal Mike Garrison called homes this evening to inform families of the tragedy.

“No McCallum students or staff members were injured,” Garrison said in the phone message. “The Austin and AISD police departments are investigating the incident. School will continue as scheduled tomorrow.”
