An unidentified driver struck an Ole Miss student walking on campus late Friday night in a hit-and-run incident now under investigation by University Police.
The pedestrian was severely injured after being struck in the hit-and-run around 2 a.m. on Saturday near the intersection of Northgate Drive and Sorority Road, according to a media advisory released by UM Communications. The student was found “a short time later” at the scene and transported to the hospital with severe injuries.
The press release ended, “Our thoughts and prayers are with the student and the student’s family.”
Jim Zook, UM associate vice chancellor for strategic communications and marketing, said on Sunday that there was no additional information available at the time and that the investigation is ongoing.
