UI administrator hit while crossing street on campus
CHAMPAIGN — A University of Illinois administrator remained hospitalized Wednesday after being hit by a car on campus Monday afternoon.
Champaign Police Chief Anthony Cobb said Bill Adams, 70, of Urbana, a special assistant to UI President Robert Easter, was crossing Sixth Street at John Street just before 4 p.m. when he was hit.
Cobb said Adams was in the crosswalk on Sixth when a car turned off John to go south on Sixth and collided with Adams, who was in the middle of the crosswalk.
Cobb said the impact of the collision tossed Adams about 20 feet into the air. He was taken to Carle Foundation Hospital in Urbana, where his condition was upgraded to good on Wednesday.
Cobb said the driver of the Toyota Camry, Seon Kim, 41, of the 400 block of East Michigan Avenue, Urbana, was ticketed for failure to yield to a pedestrian in a crosswalk.
