Raleigh, N.C. — A North Carolina State University student was in serious condition Sunday morning after being hit by a car while riding a bicycle on Dan Allen Drive, officials with N.C. State police said.
Authorities say Ross Everett Chapman, 19, was turning left onto a service road that leads to the Dan Allen Drive parking deck just before 3 a.m. when he hit Steven Kendal Otto, 21, who was riding a bicycle southbound on Dan Allen Drive.
The impact of the collision shattered the windshield of Chapman's car. Otto was transported to WakeMed Hospital following the wreck, where he was listed in serious condition Monday morning.
Chapman, also a student at NCSU, was arrested and charged with DWI and provisional DWI. Police say his blood alcohol concentration (BAC) was tested at .12, above the legal limit of .08. Chapman's blood was also being tested for other possible substances, authorities said.
No other information was released.
