A couple of updates from Chief Gary Adams concerning last night’s accident near Airline and Fondren in University Park.
Both the driver of the car and the pedestrian are students of SMU. The pedestrian was taken to Baylor Hospital with possible injuries to her hip and leg. Charges have not been filed at this time as the investigation is still underway.
I don’t have the condition on the young lady as they won’t give that out to us due to HIPPA. The driver was identified as 21 year old Katherine Joy Bedford a student at SMU and the pedestrian has been identified as Halle Elizabeth Griggs a 20 year old SMU student. The contributing factors to the accident are driver inattention and the pedestrian failed to cross at a cross walk.
