A 15-year-old Warren Township High School student is in critical condition after being struck by a car near the campus Tuesday afternoon in Gurnee, fire officials said.

The Gurnee Police Department and Gurnee Fire Department responded around 3:25 p.m. Tuesday to Route 132 and O’Plaine Road for a report of a pedestrian struck by a vehicle.

Emergency crews found a 15-year-old boy who had been struck by a 2008 Honda Accord. Paramedics transported the boy to Advocate Condell Medical Center in Libertyville where he remains in critical but stable condition, Gurnee Fire Department Lt. Andy Wienckowski said.
