A female student was hit by a truck near the intersection of Mt. Auburn Street and Dunster Street yesterday at around 4:30 p.m.

The victim, a sophomore resident of Kirkland House, was walking across Mt. Auburn Street toward Finale Desserterie and Bakery when a truck traveling on Dunster Street turned left onto Mt. Auburn Street at a quick speed, according to Elizabeth Tang '11, a witness. The driver hit the student, who fell to the ground.

The victim was then taken from the scene by paramedics. Kirkland House Master Tom Conley told The Crimson that she was eventually brought home by her mother.

Though the victim was bleeding at the scene of the incident, she later told Tang via e-mail that she would recover in 10 days.
