Students involved in car crash on Augspurger Road

Crash results in road closure and minor injury


A two-car collision on Augspurger Road Wednesday morning resulted in the road’s closure and a 30-minute traffic delay. 

One of the vehicles was towed from the scene and one driver had a minor injury to their wrist from the impact, according to Deputy Chief of Police Joshua Sticht. 

The accident happened at 10:55 a.m. outside of the Hochstetter parking lot. University Police’s investigation showed that a driver exiting the Hochstetter B parking lot failed to yield to the right of way when pulling onto Augspurger Road. The vehicle crashed into an oncoming car, Sticht said. 

The student whose car was hit said drivers on campus should slow down and pay more attention.
