A student has been hospitalized after being hit by an automobile East Market street Tuesday morning.

The condition of the student is unknown at the time, according to Greensboro police spokesperson Ron Glenn.

East Market Street — between Benbow Road and Laurel Street — is currently closed. Motorists are being asked to find a different route. 

Another student claims to have witnessed the aftermath of the accident and is waiting to provide his account to GPD and media outlets.

The student witness attempts to ensure people the accident was not a hit and run as many have claimed. 

N.C. A&T has confirmed this is not a matter for the University.

 “…This is a Greensboro Police Department investigation as it happened on a city street,” said Tiffany Jones, Director of Media Relations. 

However, an Aggie Alert was released to the N.C. A&T community hours later.

“An accident this morning on East Market Street on the south side of the university involving an A&T student pedestrian and an automobile remains under investigation, with east-bound traffic halted at Dudley Street. Please avoid the area through this morning, and be mindful of it if you are coming to campus from the downtown area.”
