Georgia freshman safety David Daniel is recovering from minor injuries he sustained when he was struck by a car on campus.
The Athens Banner-Herald reported Daniel had cuts to his left wrist and thigh as a result of the incident. He was not taken to the hospital but was treated at the campus health center.
Daniel was struck Tuesday morning when he got off a campus bus at 10:40 a.m. According to the report, he crossed in front of the bus and while he said he looked right, a Toyota Prius hit him from the left.
The driver said she saw Daniel as he emerged from behind the bus but didn’t have time to step. The driver was not injured.
The newspaper said Daniel was responsible for the incident for not crossing the street at a crosswalk, not yielding to the driver, leaving the driver with inadequate time to stop and crossing in an unsafe manner.
The 6-foot-2 Daniel, who is from Woodstock, Ga., was the No. 96 overall prospect in the Class of 2021, per the 247Sports composite.
