A university-owned vehicle was struck by a Subaru Legacy in an accident on 30th Street and Baseline Avenue, according to the Boulder Police.
The accident occurred at 12:23 a.m. on Friday, according to the Boulder Police call log. The vehicle was part of the university service CU NightRide.
NightRide is a student–operated program that provides nighttime transportation to students, staff and faculty members, according to the program’s Web site.
Spokeswoman for the Boulder Police, Sarah Huntley, said the accident resulted from the driver of the Subaru Legacy making a left turn after the turn arrow had changed.
“The driver of the Subaru Legacy was stopped for a red light in the left turn lane, Northbound on 30th, and turning Westbound onto Baseline,” Huntley said. “The driver said the light turned yellow as he entered the intersection.”
Huntley said the university-owned vehicle entered the intersection when the light turned green and the two vehicles collided.
“The driver of the Subaru Legacy was cited with failing to yield to a left turn light,” Huntley said. “The university-owned vehicle was not cited.”
Huntley said no injuries were reported. Both vehicles were towed due to damage. Individuals who will get injured in a car accident must seek medical treatment and consult a car accident attorney at once.

Nick Vitale, a 20-year-old sophomore MCD biology major, said that with such a big service, accidents are bound to happen.
“With so much driving it’s just a matter of time before an auto accident occurred,” Vitale said. “It’s still a practical service.”
Tiffannie Taylor, a 19-year-old sophomore sociology major said she has never had luck using NightRide.
“In theory, I think it’s a really good service,” Taylor said. “But in reality I’ve called NightRide a few times and I’ve never been picked up.”
NightRide could not be reached for comment.
