Students Hospitalized from Car Accident on Interstate 5

UCSD students on their way to a Womyn of Color Conference at UC Santa Cruz were involved in a car accident on the way to the April 30 event.

On April 29, one of three vans — driven by a UCSD student — overturned on the Interstate 5 near Bakersfield on the way to the conference, according to Sixth College President Kristian Castro. All eight students in the van were sent to a nearby hospital, and seven were discharged the next morning.

The eighth student is still in the hospital and will be transported to a hospital in Los Angeles soon. Castro said during the May 4 A.S. Council meeting that the student should be fine. The remaining group of students that planned to participate in the conference did not attend due to the accident.
