"When I turned around, I saw a girl lying down on the road surrounded by several other people."
According to Lee, the driver of the vehicle that hit the pedestrian stopped to check on the victim. RUPD officers on patrol between Krispy Pizza and the Phi Kappa Sigma house responded immediately to the accident. Several other RUPD officers and an ambulance also showed up.
