Pedestrian struck by car Tuesday

Sam Davis | Thursday, April 23, 2009

A car struck a pedestrian late Tuesday night on Notre Dame’s campus, said Dave Chapman, assistant director of the Notre Dame Security Police (NDSP).

Chapman said the accident took place on Stepan Road, “near where old Juniper Road used to intersect with Stepan Drive.”

The victim had been walking on campus, he said.

An EMS unit was sent to the University at 10:18 p.m., according to a WSBT report.

Chapman confirmed the victim was treated at a local hospital, but he said he could not comment on the extent of the injuries.

Because of privacy issues, Chapman said he cannot say whether the victim is a say of the University.
