On Friday, Oct. 27, an 18-year-old Western student was hit by a motor vehicle while crossing the street outside of Ridgeway Kappa.

She was walking across Highland Street in the 200 block when she was hit by the vehicle, Lieutenant Danette Beckley, public information officer of the Bellingham Police Department, said in an email.

Police arrived on the scene at 10:37 p.m. to find the student with significant head trauma. She was hospitalized at St. Joseph Medical Center in Bellingham but has since been moved to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle.

Director of Communications Paul Cocke referred questions to Bellingham Police as they were the primary investigators.
