‘Full speed’ collision injures P.E. students

Two students were injured when they ran into each other during a physical education class at Park Middle School in Antioch Monday, according to school district and fire officials.

The two sixth-grade boys were “running at full speed” when they collided during a class around 9:20 a.m., according to Antioch Unified School District Superintendent Donald Gill.

One of the boys suffered traumatic injuries and was in and out of consciousness and unable to answer questions. He was taken to University of California at Davis Medical Center in Sacramento, along with a parent, Gill said.

The second student went to a local emergency room for medical evaluation. Both boys have since been released.
