Family friends said that Matt Worley was the injured student.

Anderson said he couldn’t identify the victim due to his age.

Worley’s brother, Gage, posted to Facebook that he was accidentally run over by a car.

Anderson said the victim has some injuries.

“He has some road rash,” he said. “And he has lacerations on the back of his head.”

Anderson said he was airlifted from Andalusia Regional Hospital to USA in Mobile as a precautionary measure.
