A 21 year old male University of Michigan student was hit by a car Monday night in a crosswalk near North Quadrangle.

According to the Ann Arbor Police Department, the collision occurred on East Huron Street between Thayer and Ingalls at approximately 9:59 pm.

The Michigan student is now in critical condition at Michigan Medicine.

AAPD said the driver, a male 17 year old Ann Arbor resident, is being cooperative with the ongoing investigation.

Sergeant Bill Clock said nothing has been finalized about the cause of the crash, but initial investigation showed a vehicle that failed to yield to the pedestrian at the crosswalk.

At the current point in the investigation, alcohol and drugs are not thought to be the cause of the collision, Clock told MLive.

According to the AAPD, Westbound East Huron Street was closed at the site of the crash for further investigation, but all lanes of the street are now back open.
