The Royal Bahamas Police Force is investigating an incident involving a University of The Bahamas (UB) student who was struck by a Suzuki Swift vehicle while using the pedestrian crossing on University Drive leading to the Michael H. Eldon (MHE) Complex. The accident happened at approximately 3:15 p.m. on Wednesday, 24th January, 2018.
We wish to advise that the safety and wellbeing of UB students, faculty, staff and the public is of utmost concern. This is particularly important as they traverse the Oakes Field Campus. In recent months, UB has purchased and installed pedestrian crossing lights and the Ministry of Works has improved road markings leading to the MHE pedestrian crossing. We wish to urge drivers in the vicinity of our university campuses to please adhere to the speed limit, obey road signs and take extra precaution in pedestrian zones.
UB remains in communication with the family of the student involved in the accident and our community is praying for her recovery.
