A recent accident left a jogger in critical condition after being struck by a pickup truck. The Penn State University freshman, an 18-year-old from Berwyn, has been at the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia fighting for her life. This story is interesting, because the pedestrian in the case was reportedly in a no-pedestrian zone, but the incident did take place at an intersection where pedestrians typically cross.
The man driving the pick-up truck, a 24-year-old, reportedly was injured in the accident. He was taken to Mount Nittany Medical Center and later had to be transferred to the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania. Investigators have reported that the man was driving south on North Atherton Street when the accident happened, and police don't think they'll be filing charges against him.
