Male injured near crosswalk transported to hospital

WEDNESDAY – At 6:55 p.m. Tuesday a car struck a 21-year-old male who was crossing the street between the Towers and Townhouses South.

Several Campus Police officers and a paramedic unit arrived on the scene and transported the student to the hospital. Matthew Golden, executive director of Public Affairs and Communications, said Wednesday that the male, who was not identified by Campus Police, was “conscious and alert when he was transported to the hospital.”

Golden said the male sustained non-life threatening injuries. The male was observed awake and talking to EMS personnel at the scene Tuesday night.

According to Golden, the car that hit him was operated by a 55-year-old female whose name has not been released. She received a summons for careless driving, Golden said.

The office of Campus Police has not released a police report about the incident at this time.
