Two vehicles parked in D Lot were damaged by a hit and run driver. The accident was reported Sunday, March 30, John Myers, director of campus security and safety, said.
“The vehicle that fled the scene, the vehicle that was originally struck and the adjacent vehicle that was damaged when the second vehicle was pushed into it [were damaged],” Myers said.
Myers said a Wartburg student is a suspect in the case.
Myers said Wartburg Security is currently working with the Waverly Police Department on the case.
“Since it appeared the vehicle that caused the damage had left the scene, we called the police. We don’t have authority off campus,” Myers said.
The cost of the damage done is unknown.
Myers cautioned students to be aware of erratic drivers and report such incidents to Wartburg Security.
“Also, note the condition of your vehicle in the event someone does damage their vehicle,” he said.
“Most hit and run accidents in our parking lots result in just minor damage. This one was different, as the damage was more substantial,” Myers said.
