KU police: No alcohol involved in Oct. 9 accident on campus

October 23, 2012


A 20-year-old Kansas University student was cited for inattentive driving, but there was no alcohol involved in an Oct. 9 campus accident that sent another KU student to the hospital, according to an accident report from KU police.

Brian G. Maura’s Nissan Altima hit 21-year-old KU student Amanda Belford as Maura headed out of Lot 19 near Jayhawker Towers, 1603 W. 15th St., and onto Irving Hill Road shortly before 8 p.m. Belford, who was walking when hit, was taken to Stormont-Vail Hospital in Topeka and was later diagnosed with a concussion. Neither Belford nor Maura exhibited signs of intoxication, the report said.

If he was like most students on or around campus, he was probably head-down, texting while crossing the street with no regard for his own safety. You might have the right of way as pedestrian, but tell that to the idiot driver who just ran you over.

Did you read the story? He, the driver, was cited for distracted driving. The pedestrian, a she, was struck and the article made no mention of them doing any wrong.

I had to honk at a woman to get her to move on a green light at 19th & KY yesterday. We both went north, and when I passed her she had her head down, texting. Moron.

Here's what you don't understand: Her texting was obviously much more important than arriving at her destination without having an accident.

I am old and cranky. Me hate students. They are younger than me. They have their whole lives in front of them. Me hate them. Me talk about them mean. Me sad.
