ELON, N.C. — A 75-year-old woman from Gibsonville was charged in the accident that left an Elon University freshman in critical condition in the hospital.

An Elon University Police report shows Patricia Madren was charged with failing to yield to a pedestrian at a crosswalk and failing to reduce speed as necessary to avoid a collision.

“No force or pursuit were involved,” the incident report states. “The pedestrian sustained severe injuries and was transported to UNC Hospital.”

The report says a sock, a pair of shoes and the 2007 Toyota Camry involved in the accident were seized. The reporting officer said he met with Madren on March 17th, the day after the accident, and issued her the citations.

The report indicated there was no suspicion of alcohol or drugs involved. It said the case is closed and “cleared by arrest.”

The accident happened on North Williamson Avenue on Elon’s campus around 8p.m. Monday.

Rosales is still in critical condition.
