A University of Illinois student from Chicago was killed when she was struck by a pick-up truck that plowed onto a campus sidewalk in Champaign-Urbana.
Mimi Liu, 20, of the 3600 block of South Lock Street, was walking near McKinley Hall on the U of I campus yesterday when police say the truck jumped a curb, sideswiped a car, and struck both Liu and another student on the sidewalk.
Liu was taken to Carle Foundation Hospital where she was pronounced dead.
The other student, Spandana Mantravadi, 20, was taken to the same hospital.
The driver, Willie Craft Sr., 58, was cited for driving without insurance and improper lane usage.
Police say other charges are pending the results of blood tests.
