Scott-On January 1 2022, Deputies responded to the Scott Memorial Hospital in reference to a pedestrian who was struck by a vehicle on Highway 256 near Johnson Elementary School.  Video surveillance collected from several locations near the scene revealed the incident occurred at approximately 7:30pm.  The video surveillance further showed several vehicles stopping in the area around that time frame.
