A Baylor student was injured in a hit-and-run accident at approximately 10 p.m. on University Parks Drive in front of the Baylor Sciences Building, Waco Police Department authorities said.
The incident caused a portion of two lanes on the street to close for about half an hour, as debris from the accident littered the street.
Several responders from the Waco and Baylor police departments, including the Waco Fire Department, arrived at the scene to help treat the victim.
The student, who was driving east on University Parks Drive on a red moped, was responsive at the scene. A Waco Police Department officer said the victim identified the suspect as driving a sedan, but did not specify the color.
The victim was transported to Baylor Scott & White Hillcrest Medical Center, where the current condition of the victim is unknown.
The officer said although the victim was responsive, there was a bad puncture on the victim’s back caused by scarring after the victim slid across University Parks Drive.
“There are a lot of scrapes and bruises on the victim as a result of the accident,” a Waco police officer said.
At the time of publication, the officer said there were no witnesses or suspects.
