WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) - A Purdue student is in critical condition after he hit a car while running along the road.
Tippecanoe County sheriff's deputies said horseplay was a factor for the incident on State Street, just west of McCormick Road, shortly after 5 p.m. Monday.
Investigators said a group of runners from the Purdue Running Club was running against traffic. Deputies said as a car heading east moved over to center, Mark Satterly, 20, fell and hit the car.
As of 10 p.m. Monday, Satterly was listed in critical condition at Franciscan St. Elizabeth East hospital. Authorities said he has a bruised lung and a head injury, but it's not expected to be life-threatening.
Satterly is a junior civil engineering student from Indianapolis.
State Street was closed for about an hour while crews cleared the scene.
