MILWAUKEE -- Three students were struck by a vehicle outside Barack Obama School in Milwaukee Thursday morning, Jan. 24. It happened around 8:15 a.m.

According to police, a vehicle spun out and went over the curb -- striking the students.

"It's kind of shocking but it's not surprising," said Katrina Moore.

Katrina Moore and Ricky Lane say they walk in this area almost every day -- and are not happy about the driving they see.
