University student seriously injured after being run over during game

No charges are anticipated after an Ontario Tech University student was run over by a vehicle while playing a game over the weekend.

According to the DRPS, officers were called to the campus, located on Simcoe Street North in Oshawa, shortly after 8 p.m. Saturday (Nov. 9).

“A 20-year-old Ontario Tech University student was located on Commencement Drive with serious injuries and a white 2020 Mini Cooper was parked nearby. Fraternity members were playing a game called Capture the Brick, which is a scavenger hunt game. One of the game participants, believing a motor vehicle contained the brick, laid down in front of the car to prevent it from leaving,” reads a media release from police.

“Unfortunately, another game participant entered the vehicle and, not knowing his friend was in front of the vehicle, drove over him, causing serious injuries, including a fractured leg and shoulder.”

The victim was transported to Sunnybrook with serious, but non-life threatening, police say.
