NU student struck by car in hit-and-run near campus

A Northwestern student was struck by a car in a hit-and-run early Saturday morning.

The student, whose name or personal details have not been released, is receiving medical care. University spokesperson Jon Yates told The Daily that NU cannot comment on the student’s condition due to privacy restrictions.

“We continue to provide support to the student and their family,” Yates said in a Wednesday email to The Daily. “We are grateful for fellow students who called 911 so that the student could receive immediate care.”

Evanston Police Department is currently looking into the incident. In a Wednesday email to The Daily, Sgt. Scott Sophier wrote that the investigation is pending, and there is no further information to share.

The University urges anyone with information about the hit-and-run to contact EPD, Yates added.
