Missouri hardly incident-free

An accident last Friday afternoon in Columbia, Missouri, was the third incident within the space of a week where a car has hit a pedestrian or cyclist.

On November 3, 18 year-old MU freshman Greg Hahn collided with a car at the intersection of Stewart and Providence roads, causing the youngster to fly through the air and land in the middle of the street. The Columbia Missourian reports that Hahn was rushed to hospital, where he was said to be in fair condition the following afternoon.

Columbia police Officer Curtis Perkins said Hahn was not wearing a helmet, not a legal requirement in the US, with the Columbia Police Department's Traffic Unit still investigating the crash. The previous Sunday, a 31 year-old male was killed while walking on Nifong Boulevard, and on the same night, 20 year-old cyclist Aurora Chamberlin was hit by a car and hospitalised as a result, reported to be in a fair condition last Saturday.
