A 25-year-old Penn State student was killed Tuesday night when she was struck by a vehicle on East Park Avenue. The driver, described by police as a 20-year-old male international Penn State student, was heading westbound, crossed into oncoming traffic, and struck the female jogger on the sidewalk around 8 p.m. Tuesday.
The pedestrian was transported to Mount Nittany Medical Center, then transferred to the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center in Altoona, but ultimately died, according to police. State College Police don’t believe alcohol or drug use was involved in the crash.
Penn State sent a university-wide alert at 8:41 p.m. Tuesday night that Park Avenue between Allen Street and Bigler Road would be “closed for an undetermined amount of time, due to a traffic accident.”
