DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) - A former Troy High School cheerleader is in serious condition after being hit by a car early Sunday morning in Columbus.
Rachel Stump, a first year student at Ohio State University, had been on campus for just three days when she was hit.
A spokesperson for The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center told 2 NEWS Stump was in serious condition Monday morning.
Columbus Police tell 2 NEWS Stump stepped into High Street near Chittenden Avenue around 2:15 Sunday morning.
Officers said Stump was not in a crosswalk when she was struck by a 2002 Mitsubishi Galant, driven by 21 year-old William Connor Anderson. Witnesses told investigators the Anderson had a green light.
Anderson failed a field sobriety test at the scene and police said he was booked into jail on a charge of aggravated vehicular assault. Investigators said they are waiting on more alcohol test results and plan to take the case to a grand jury. At this point, Anderson has not been officially charged.
Columbus Police cited Stump for walking in the road outside of a crosswalk.
Meanwhile, social media posts are rapidly multiplying, asking users to Pray for Rachel with the hashtag #PrayForRachel.
In Troy, school officials said they will have guidance counselors on hand when students return to class on Wednesday.
"It's just a sense of shock," said William Overla, the Principal at Troy High School. "We pride ourselves on having a very tight knit community, not just in town, but in our schools. It just makes your heart real heavy".
