Officer Boyd was called over at the University Village in regards to vehicle property damage on Nov. 3 at 3:52 p.m. Boyd made contact with the student and she explained that when she was trying to park into a spot, she saw a car coming to her left trying to pull out. The student stated she honked the horn to let the other vehicle know she was parking in a spot close by. Before she knew it, the other vehicle bumped into the back rear driver’s side of her vehicle. She explained to Boyd that this happened around 1:45 p.m., but she decided to go ahead and make a report to have it on file after talking to her father about the incident. The student did not obtain the other victim’s information due to the individual having to work at a certain time when this incident took place. She stated that the individual who hit her told her, “It’s okay, I have to be at work.” The student never exchanged any vehicle information, insurance or name of the individual that hit her. There is an estimated $500 worth in damages.
Officer McGee responded to a call at Lot 5 in reference to a motor vehicle accident involving two vehicles, without any reported injuries on Nov. 4 at 1:29 p.m. An eStem student attempted to enter into Lot 5; however, since she is not a UA Little Rock student, she did not have a campus ID to enter the parking lot. The student then backed her vehicle out in an attempt to leave the lot and struck another vehicle. The other victim opened the gate of Lot 5 so both parties could be there when the University Police arrived. After assessing the damages on both vehicles, Officer McGee observed minor damages to the vehicle that got hit near the bumper alignment on the driver’s side. No paint or scuff marks were present at the time of the incident. The student’s vehicle did not have any damages or marks in regards to this accident. Both parties exchanged insurance information and gave a UA Little Rock report number.
