Student seriously injured in on-campus collision

Colorado State University police responded to an accident that occurred at the intersection of West Pitkin Street and Ellis Drive in front of Academic Village and Edwards Hall at approximately 6:15 p.m. Monday. 

The accident involved a car and one pedestrian, wrote Dell Rae Ciaravola, public information officer for the CSU Police Department, in an email to The Collegian. According to an Aug. 27 press release published by CSUPD, the driver of the vehicle was a 32-year-old female, and the pedestrian was an 18-year-old male. Both individuals are students at CSU.


The pedestrian sustained serious injuries and was transported to Medical Center of the Rockies. 

In an alert sent by CSUPD to students at approximately 7 p.m. yesterday, it was announced that Pitkin Street would be closed between South Shields Street and Meridian Avenue. This section of Pitkin Street was closed off until around midnight, Ciaravola wrote.

CSUPD is investigating the accident at this time.
