UC Davis student dies of injuries suffered in Friday collision

A 19-year-old UC Davis student died today of injuries suffered when he was struck by a vehicle Friday night.

Davis police were called to Arlington Boulevard and Shasta Drive about 11 p.m. regarding a collision involving a pedestrian and a vehicle. Police said a 62-year-old Davis woman was eastbound on Arlington Boulevard approaching the intersection of Shasta Drive. As she entered the intersection, her vehicle struck a pedestrian, Brennan Morrow, who entered and started to cross the roadway, according to a Police Department news release.

Morrow, a Davis resident, was taken by ambulance to UC Davis Medical Center with severe injuries.

Police said the driver remained at the scene and cooperated with investigators, who said they found no evidence that the woman was impaired by alcohol or drugs.

Police said there is evidence that Morrow consumed alcoholic beverages before the collision and that alcohol may have been a factor in the accident. But they said his level of intoxication and the exact role it may have played in the collision are still under investigation.

Officials said the Davis Police Department has been working with student and community groups to discuss the effect of alcohol on youth safety and will continue to seek ways to curb illegal underage drinking.
