Minivan strikes two seniors outside Pierson

Joseph Fahrendorf ’06 and Sonya Bonnin ’06 were hospitalized late Thursday night after being struck by a minivan on the corner of Edgewood Avenue and Park Street.

Fahrendorf was discharged from the hospital early today, but further information on Bonnin’s condition was unavailable this afternoon, a spokesman for Yale-New Haven Hospital said.

New Haven Police officer Craig Dixon said icy road conditions caused the vehicle to slide through the intersection and into the pedestrians.

The vehicle, a green Dodge Caravan, came to a stop after damaging a railing near the entrance to Pierson College. Portions of Park and Edgewood near the car remained blocked by police early Friday. The driver of the privately owned minivan remained at the scene of the accident, Yale Police Department Lt. Michael Patten said.

The Yale Daily News will provide updated information when available.
