Head-on collision may have been caused by alcohol consumption
A current WSU student was involved in a car accident just before midnight Sunday near University Blvd. and Lot #11, according to a Wright State Police Department supplement case report released Monday.
According to the supplement narrative by Reporting Officer Zachary Norman, the vehicles of Courtney George and Jordan Hardy collided into one another “in front of the rock between Lot #11 and Lot #10.”
Norman deemed the accident a “head on collision with a possible OVI,” and said in his report, “Mr. Hardy was driving under the influence of alcohol.”
George and Hardy both sustained injuries from the crash, which were not specified in the report. George, an early childhood education undergraduate at WSU, was transported to Soin Medical Center and Hardy, a non-WSU student, traveled to Miami Valley Hospital for treatment, the report said.
“They had the road blocked off, so you had to cut through campus housing or turn around to get to the other side of campus. At first it looked like a car ran into the rock, but after pulling into the Millet parking lot, it was obvious two cars were involved in a serious collision. The front ends were completely destroyed,” eye witness Brittney McKee said. “I saw one of the people getting carried out on a stretcher, but he was sitting up, wearing a neck brace, and was alert.”
“Both vehicles had heavy front end damage and both drivers were lying by their vehicles,” Norman said in his narrative.
Norman was unavailable for comment. The State Highway Patrol responded to the scene of the crash, and has taken over the crash investigation, according to the report.
