A lamp post outside of the Chevron Science Center fell to the ground Friday, striking a Pitt student.

The student is currently in the emergency room as a result of the event, and the cause of the incident is unknown.

“A male student was struck on the foot by a fallen light pole Friday afternoon on the corner of University Drive and Parkman Avenue,” University spokesperson Kevin Zwick said. “He was taken to a nearby hospital for treatment and Student Affairs is reaching out to offer assistance.”
