CAS Junior Injured by Car in Connecticut
Cassandre Marie Plantin was returning to campus
A College of Arts and Sciences junior is in stable but critical condition after being struck by a car outside a McDonald’s in Vernon, Conn., on Sunday. Officer Kevin Slater of the Vernon Police Department says Cassandre Marie Plantin was hit by a Toyota Prius just after 7 p.m. as she was walking from a McDonald’s to the bus she was riding to Boston from her home in New York. Slater says Plantin was treated at a local hospital and flown by helicopter to the trauma center at Hartford Hospital.
Plantin’s father, Moise Plantin, says his daughter had spent the weekend at their home in Westbury, N.Y. His daughter suffered a fractured nose and right orbital, he says, and after the accident “knew where she was, but she could not remember what happened.”
She is the second BU student hit by a car in less than a week. Last Thursday, a College of Engineering sophomore was struck on Commonwealth Avenue.
