A Northwestern student was hit by a car near the intersection of Sheridan Road and Foster Street just before 5 p.m. Tuesday.

It remains unclear how the student collided with the dark green Honda Civic, which was heading north on Sheridan Road toward Foster Street. The driver declined to comment.

Although Weinberg junior Mariah Wood did not witness the accident, she said she was called to the scene outside the Donald P. Jacobs Center, where police told her that her friend was conscious and not in critical condition.

“It sounded like she wasn’t maybe looking but also he was going too fast,” Wood said.

Deputy Chief Dan McAleer confirmed the accident. Officer Andre Coleman from Northwestern University Police Department confirmed officers were sent to the scene.

“When I came, she was laying on the ground, she was conscious and everything,” Wood said. “They were helping her out and an ambulance came.”

Wood said an officer told her that her friend was taken to the NorthShore Evanston Hospital.
