Two Traffic Accidents & Assault/Theft Keep CS Police BusyFeatured Stories, News Friday, October 12th, 2012
College Station Police was tied up with three major incidents for the first 12 hours on Friday.
Officer Rhonda Seaton says that includes a College Station woman who remains hospitalized after she was hit in a crosswalk by a minivan at Rock Prairie and Longmire. The pedestrian was identified as 22 year old Desiree Vinson of College Station. The driver of the minivan was not hurt. Detectives still wish to speak to any possible witnesses to the crash. The accident, reported at 5:30 a.m., closed the intersection until 8:15.
Also during the Friday morning commute, two cars collided at University and the southbound freeway frontage road. Both drivers were taken to the hospital for treatment of injuries not believed to be life threatening. Seaton says one of the cars also struck a large truck that did not stop. Witnesses are being asked to contact CSPD to assist in the investigation.
And in Northgate Friday morning shortly before 2:30, witnesses saw a man beaten in the Coyote parking lot. The victim told officers he could not remember what led to the assault and theft of his wallet and cell phone. Witnesses said they saw the suspect kick the victim, who had a swollen head but refused transport to the hospital. Witnesses provided conflicting stories regarding the type of vehicle the suspect left the scene in. The suspect is described as a white male wearing a red shirt. Anyone with information regarding this incident is asked to contact the College Station Police Department by calling 979-764-3600.
