Student Injured in Minor K-Ville Accident

A student sustained minor injuries when he was run over by a car while sleeping in the walk-up line for tonight's matchup with UNC, ABC Eyewitness News reported Wednesday.

Witnesses told ABC that driver severely bruised the student's knees while attempting to steer around the crossbar to enter the parking lot. The driver drove away from the scene when she realized what had happened, ABC reported.

"I'm asleep, right, and a car comes, and the tire is right here on my knees," the student told ABC. "I wake up, start banging on the hood, these guys start yelling. She stays there for about seven seconds until she realizes she's on a human being."

The student told ABC he was feeling sore but expected a full recovery. He declined to comment to The Chronicle.

Vice President for Student Affairs Larry Moneta, Dean of Students Sue Wasiolek and DUPD Maj. Gloria Graham told The Chronicle they were unaware of the incident Wednesday afternoon.

Freshman Dan Barron told The Chronicle he did not witness the hit-and-run but had heard the student would be in Cameron Indoor Stadium for Duke's matchup with UNC nonetheless.

"True dedication," Barron said. "That's how dedicated we are to hating Carolina."
