PULLMAN, Wash. - Two male students have been hospitalized and a suspect is in custody following an early morning traffic incident in which a vehicle entered the Washington State University campus and struck two pedestrians at separate locations along Stadium Way.

Bill Gardner, WSU Police chief, said the vehicle was reportedly operating "erratically" in the westbound lanes of SR 270 between Moscow and Pullman shortly before the entering campus. The driver apparently turned north on Stadium Way at about 7:30 a.m., and struck the first student in a crosswalk near Gannon and Goldsworthy dorms. Continuing on, the car hit the center median before striking the student on a sidewalk near Wegner Hall.

The vehicle then stopped at the corner of Grimes and Stadium Way, where the driver exited the car and fled before being apprehended by WSU Police in the vicinity of McCoy Hall, Gardner said.

The identities of the injured students and the driver have yet to be released, but Gardner said the parents of both students have been contacted. He said both students sustained multiple traumas, but that neither victim's injuries appeared to be life-threatening.

WSU Police, Whitman County Sheriff's officers, state and city police are working together on the investigation. The northbound lanes of Stadium Way are closed and expected to remain closed indefinitely pending completion of the on-scene investigation. Although one southbound lane of Stadium Way remains open, drivers are being asked avoid the portion of Stadium Way between Grimes to Nevada pending completion of the on-scene investigation.
