An 18-year-old University of St. Thomas student was injured Tuesday evening while crossing the intersection of Summit and Cretin avenues.

Police arrested the driver on suspicion of driving while intoxicated and was brought to the Ramsey County jail.

Paramedics responded to the scene and transported Vang to Regions Hospital. She suffered non-life-threatening injuries and was listed in fair condition Wednesday morning.
