Elon University senior Olivia Hobbs was struck by a car around 8:30 a.m. Thursday while crossing at the intersection of East Trollinger Avenue and North Williamson Avenue. For reference, this is right near the Elon Post Office and the Town of Elon Police Department. 

A student was hit by a car at the intersection of Trollinger Avenue and North Williamson Avenue, near the Elon Post Office. 

Cliff Parker, Town of Elon police chief, said Hobbs was conscious and had no life-threatening injuries. She was treated at Alamance Regional Medical Center.

The driver, Amitkumar Shah, is a Gibsonville resident. Shah told Elon News Network that the student, "Was crossing and it was too late," and that he's sorry. He is not an Elon student.

Shah is charged with NC General Statute 20-154, which is "failing to signal on starting, stopping or turning."

Hobbs declined to comment after ENN called her, but said she is "a little bruised and battered." 

ENN also reached out to university officials for more information, but they said they do not have any at this time.
