An arrest has been made in the vehicle/pedestrian crash that hospitalized a University of Wyoming student. A 21 year old WyoTech student, Timothy Lund, was arrested on suspicion of DWUI with serious bodily injury according to the Laramie Police Department.

Commander Mitch Cushman says Lund was driving south on 15th Street Wednesday night around 6:30 p.m. when he crossed into the northbound lane, jumped a curb and hit 19 year old Cale McCormick, who was on the sidewalk near the crosswalk at Ivinson. Eyewitness reports indicate that McCormick was carried several yards on the hood of Lund’s car, before it crashed into a parked SUV in the White Hall parking lot. Unconfirmed reports allege that the driver was going far in excess of the 20 mph limit, was high from huffing aerosol and had blacked out.

McCormick, a freshman from Lewellen, Neb., was transported to Ivinson Memorial Hospital and later LifeFlight transported him to a Colorado hospital due to the seriousness of his injuries. UW reports that he is now in stable condition with multiple injuries, including several fractures.

The LPD, University Police Department, Wyoming Highway Patrol and the Albany County Sheriff’s Office are conducting a multi-department investigation into the crash. A DWUI with serious bodily injury is a felony and may be punished with a fine of not over $5,000 and imprisoned up to 10 years.
