Collision blocked exit onto University Boulevard

An accident in the student parking lot yesterday blocked the exit onto University Boulevard, prompting the security staff to redirect traffic out of the lot. Senior Andrea Wilkinson collided with a school bus as it entered the lot at approximately 2:20 p.m. She suffered no major injuries, but did require medical attention due to a surface head injury. Paramedics were present almost immediately following the accident.

Wilkinson was traveling out of the parking lot in order to veer onto University Boulevard, but did not look both ways and failed to see the bus coming towards her. She was exiting through a lane designed for buses only, though students leave the parking lot through this lane often.

"It was my fault I didn't look both ways," says Wilkinson, "but the bus driver could have at least gotten out of his bus to see if I was ok." Wilkinson's vehicle was totaled and subsequently towed.

Security was not available to comment.
