Don’t touch that dial
A male driving a friend’s vehicle struck two parked cars in the main commuter lot Thursday, Oct. 2 at 5:45 p.m. When Public Safety officers first arrived at the scene, they could not locate the owners of the three cars involved in the accident. The officers conducted a search for the owners and contacted them.
The owner of the car that the male was driving arrived at 6 p.m. She said her male friend, who was unfamiliar with her car, was trying to turn on the radio and didn’t know that the car was a stick shift. When he started the vehicle, it rolled forward and hit the other two cars. There was extensive damage to one of the struck cars and it had to be towed. The other car had minimal damage and was able to leave by its own power. The male was not carrying a driver’s license at the time.
