1. On Sunday, Oct. 14, at 6:59 p.m., UR Security officers responded to a car accident on Joseph C. Wilson Boulevard near the Interfaith Chapel. According to UR Security Investigator Roger Keirsbilck, an undergraduate received lacerations to his head after crossing the road and getting struck by a car.

Though the undergraduate could not remember what happened before the collision, officers determined that he had been within the crosswalk. The driver, also an undergraduate, said he was driving toward Alumni Road at the speed limit but did not see the other student in time to break.

Rural/Metro Medical Service transported the undergraduate to the Strong Memorial Hospital Emergency Department for care. The driver was not injured, but his windshield and door were damaged.

Kitchen slip-up starts stovetop smolder

2. On Friday, Oct. 12, at 11:13 a.m., Security officers and the Rochester Fire Department responded to a smoke alarm in the George Washington Goler House. Firefighters discovered the source of the smoke — a third-floor apartment — but found that the fire had already been extinguished, Keirsbilck said.

The resident of the apartment said she had unknowingly placed an electric tea kettle on the stovetop, causing the kettle to ignite. She then extinguished the fire before evacuating the building.

Firefighters determined that there was no danger and officers contacted maintenance to replace the damaged stove. No injuries were incurred.
