Two injured in crash on SMC’s The Avenue

Sam Davis | Thursday, September 9, 2004

Two students, one on a bicycle and one driving a car, collided Wednesday evening at the corner of Indiana 933 and The Avenue, in front of the entrance to Saint Mary’s.

Saint Mary’s Security responded to the accident at 4:45 p.m., according to Saint Mary’s marketing and public relations director Nick Farmer.

A representative of the St. Joseph County Police Department confirmed its presence on the scene as well.

The Notre Dame Fire Department reportedly transported one student to Saint Joseph Regional Medical Center and the other to Memorial Hospital.

The driver of the car was treated and released by Wednesday night, but as of 10 p.m., the bicyclist was still undergoing tests. Farmer reported, however, that none of the sustained injuries appeared to be serious.

Farmer declined to provide any information about the students involved in the accident.
