COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (KKTV) - Police are reporting several students lifted a vehicle to help a girl who had just been run over in a Colorado Springs high school parking lot.

The incident happened at about 2:45 p.m. at Rampart High School on the northeast side of the city. The school is off Lexington Drive between N. Union Boulevard and Research Parkway.

The pedestrian is a girl who was "pinned while fully under the vehicle," according to Colorado Springs Police. Several students lifted the vehicle up enough to allow a Colorado Springs Police Resource officer to pull the girl out from under the vehicle.

The girl was taken to Children's Hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

Counselors will be available at the school on Tuesday for any students who need it. Those who witnessed the crash can meet with counselors over the weekend.

The driver involved was another student. Charges are not expected for the driver as the crash remains under investigation.
