A vehicle struck a DePaul student in front of Molito's Moble, 1106 W. Fullerton Ave., around 9:45 p.m. The driver was also a DePaul student
Evan Kuck, junior, left a DePaul Cru meeting at the John T. Richardson library to walk home to his apartment on Wellington Avenue. A student, also a junior, driving a dark red mini van turned into Molito's, across from the Lincoln Park quad, and hit Kuck as he was walking on the sidewalk.
Students near the scene at the time of the accident said they heard tire screeches and saw Kuck fly several feet into the air. Kuck appeared to be in stable condition as witnesses said they saw him "rolling around on the ground."
Public Safety said Kuck was conscious, but "took a good punch." An official said Kuck was talking, but in shock because of the incident. He was taken to Illinois Masonic Hospital for treatment.
