Chico State student hit by car in front of campus

Photo of the crosswalk where the student was hit by a car. Photo taken Sept, 27 by Molly Myers.

UPDATE: The student is in stable condition and is home from the hospital, Daisy Giselle Costilla-Jaimes, the victim’s girlfriend said.

A Chico State student was hit by a car, driven by another student, while crossing the intersection of Second  and Ivy Streets. 

Their names have not been released at this time. 


The victim was transported by ambulance to a hospital. 


The driver said his vision was impacted by the setting sun, University Police Chief Chris Nicodemus said.


Witnesses told UPD the driver turned on a green light while the victim also had the signal to cross.


Both the driver and the victim were men, said UPD Lieutenant Davison.


Nicodemus said that the streets around campus are busy and drivers and pedestrians need to be cautious. 


“Don’t assume the right away,” Nicodemus said.


The Orion will continue updating this story as more information becomes available.

    It’s a whole lot of bullshit to say , ” don’t assume the right away.” Well, what are you supposed to do ? Oh , follow the light and signal in your given direction, but that means someone is lying, correct ? How did both participants have a green light at same time. I’m no scholar or pretender but I am civilized enough to say….. Pedestrians have the right away, if your driving a 2000 lb. weapon,maybe just maybe,it’s your responsibility to not ever hit anyone or anything. Isn’t it best said that when driving you should be driving defensively and paying attention at all times. because stuff like this happens everyday in America , not just Chico. Umm , that’s a tough one and if it bothers you to realize your status quo of being lucky enough to afford a car , means your responsibility for other people’s lives comes with that luck too
