Student gets hit by car without serious injury; driver gets citation

At around 8:05 a.m. Oct. 1, a silver Mazda traveling east on Students Lane struck UCA student Dejuanee Franklin while she walked through a crosswalk.

Franklin reportedly turned around in multiple circles before falling to the ground disoriented. The driver, UCA student Katlynn Koch, told the officer that she was sorry but that she needed to leave to get to class for a test.

Franklin, meanwhile, could not walk and was moved to the sidewalk to wait for MEMS. Koch explained to the officer that she could not see the road because the sun was blinding her and that she was “only going 10 mph.”

MEMS cleared Franklin to leave with no injuries, and UCAPD issued Koch a municipal citation for failure to yield to a pedestrian in a crosswalk.
