Student Jogger Taken to Trauma Center After Car Collision

A female Penn State student was taken to a nearby trauma center this morning after being hit by a car on Atherton Street.

Here’s how State College Police described the incident in a release this morning:

At 9:45 this morning the State College Police responded to a crash at the intersection of N. Atherton St. and W. Park Avenue. Preliminary investigation indicates that a female jogger was eastbound and ran into the path of a Ford F250 which was traveling southbound on Atherton St. The female was taken to Mount Nittany Medical Center and then flown to a nearby trauma center.

Per the investigation, the jogger was crossing the busy T-intersection into campus by the Nittany Lion Inn.

The severity of the injuries are unknown at this time, and her name is being withheld from the public at the moment. We’ll have more information as it becomes available. Our thoughts go out to the student’s family and we’re hopeful for a speedy recovery.
