University Police confirmed that a vehicle struck a student on campus on Tuesday night.

The student was transported to the hospital after being struck by a vehicle on Kenton Drive near Norse Commons, according to Chris Cole, NKU director of marketing and communications.

The student complained of leg, back and neck injuries after the incident, but was released from UC  Hospital shortly after 2 a.m. on Wednesday after receiving word that he had no broken bones or internal trauma, according to Cole.

Sophomore art and psychology double major Kati Herman said she was walking toward Norse Commons when she saw the incident occur.

“I heard wheels screech and something rolling,” she said. “When I looked, I realized it was a guy.”

According to Herman, the driver appeared to be a middle-aged woman. Herman said the police were quick to respond to the scene.

University Police are currently investigating the incident.

The student’s identity has not yet been released.

The student, according to Cole, did suffer some strains and bruises from the incident.
