Police arrested a Notre Dame senior Saturday night when he crashed his truck into a vacant building at a South Bend intersection and then fled the scene of the accident. Sgt. James Walsh from the South Bend Police Department said the crash occurred around 10 p.m. at the intersection of Eddy Street and South Bend Avenue. “The driver overcorrected on his turn and drove into the building,” Walsh said. Walsh said none of the evidence points to intoxication as a factor in the accident. The student left his car and returned home. Walsh said the building was structurally sound before the crash and is now “very unstable and dangerous.” Police arrested the student at his off-campus home about an hour after the crash for leaving the scene of an accident causing property damage. He spent several hours in the St. Joseph County Jail on Sunday morning. Walsh predicted the student would face a misdemeanor charge from the St. Joseph Country Prosecutor’s Office in the next few days. The Observer is withholding the student’s identity because he has not yet been formally charged with a crime.
