A University student was struck by a bus early Wednesday morning in the crosswalk at First Street and Gregory Street.

Joshua Reed, a student in Business, was walking west on First Street when a bus turning south on First hit him at 1:30 a.m., said Pat Wade UIPD Spokesman.

Reed was taken to Carle Hospital shortly after the collision. Wade said Reed had non-life threatening injuries.

Wade said the bus driver, Carl Williford, was issued a citation for failure to yield to a pedestrian.
