The SMU Daily Campus Mustang reports an accident yesterday at 6:15 p.m. involving a pedestrian. I checked in with UPPD Chief Gary Adams for more informtion.
The young woman was struck as she was crossing mid-block on Airline near Fondren. Her injuries did not appear to be life threatening.
The driver of the car is a student at SMU and was distracted at the time and not fully attentive to her driving when she struck the young woman in the street.
The accident is still under investigation by a UPPD accident investigator.
I will provide further information this morning as it becomes available.
