April 15, 2010 – A Tufts University student suffered serious personal injuries when he was struck by a vehicle as he was attempting to cross an intersection in Medford, Massachusetts. The accident occurred when the driver was trying to make a right turn from Boston Avenue onto College Avenue at around 3:45 p.m. on Saturday.
