MILWAUKEE - A woman has been hospitalized Tuesday morning after a car struck her and a man on the Marquette University campus.
The crash happened just before midnight Monday evening at the corner of North 13th Street and West Wisconsin Avenue.
Kellie Phillips was walking on campus around 11:30 p.m. Monday night when she saw two students get hit by a car.
"I was shaking the whole time, then we ran up and did everything we could," said Phillips to TODAY'S TMJ4's Melissa McCrady.
"We ran up and did everything we could. Thankfully, we were there so someone could call 911 right away."
Witnesses say that a silver Mazda struck the man and woman as they crossed the street.
According to witnesses, the woman went to Columbia-St. Mary's Hospital. She should survive her injuries.
"She landed on her backpack," said Phillips.
Phillips said the man was able to get up. He did not go to the hospital.
Marquette sophomore Max Hess shot raw video of the crash scene shortly after it happened.
"I saw there was a girl, or a person, laying on the floor, and they had a brace on her and were working on her, and there were a lot of people around her," said Hess.
The driver remained on the scene of the crash.
Phillips gave a word of warning to students and drivers near Marquette.
"You have to be watchful as a pedestrian, but also as a driver because this is a terrible intersection right here."
Milwaukee Police are looking into the cause of the incident.
