A car accident on Forbes Avenue in front of the Alpha Epsilon Pi (AEPi) fraternity house on the Fraternity Quadrangle a little bit before 5 p.m. Tuesday caused traffic to go down to one lane. At press time, no apparent injuries had been reported. Motorist Kelan Nixon reported that he took a “left turn from Morewood and got hit from the side by a cab that was coming from the far left lane.”

Both cars sustained visible damage. The cab was missing its front bumper and the front headlights were shattered. The driver of the cab was unavailable to respond.

University Police were at the scene of the accident to direct traffic and record a police report. Officer Hendershot said, “The accident appeared to be just an accident and the insurance companies would take over from here.”
