Summary of Events

On or about the above date, time and location a University Police Officer on routine patrol came across suspected damage to campus property caused by a motor vehicle. A subsequent investigation determined that, a current student, Christopher WRIGHT had caused the damage while operating a 2006 Ford convertible that he had been operating northbound along Morris Drive. Upon approaching the intersection, WRIGHT lost control of the vehicle when it skidding on snow and ice on the roadway surface, causing the vehicle to continue over the curb and into and landscaped area of the traffic island at that location. Attempts to free the vehicle caused damage to the turf and landscaping. WRIGHT was cited for failing to drive a vehicle at a safe speed.
