A Baylor student was taken to Hillcrest Medical Center after colliding with a bus on his moped Tuesday afternoon near campus.

Baylor Police Chief Jim Doak said the Waco Police Department is handling the investigation.

The 20-year-old student was traveling north on University Parks on his moped when he collided with a Waco Transit Bus around 2:40 p.m, according to a preliminary report by Sgt W. Patrick Swanton with the Waco Police Department.

KWTX reported that a Waco police officer said the student slid under the bus and the bus ran over his legs, but Swanson said he cannot confirm this until an official report is released.

Swanton said the student was not wearing a helmet and was taken by ambulance to Hillcrest Medical Center with significant injuries.

An update from the hospital on his condition was not available at the time of publication.
