MUNCIE, Ind. Police say a Ball State University student suffered head injuries when she was struck by a car while jogging near the campus.

Muncie police say 20-year-old Emily Case of Columbus was hit Tuesday at an intersection crosswalk several blocks east of the campus. The Star Press reports her head hit the car's windshield and the impact knocked her about 20 feet.

Police Sgt. Bruce Qualls says Case suffered a concussion but no broken bones. She was taken to a Muncie hospital in serious condition, but was listed in fair condition Wednesday.

WRTV reports the driver told officers she didn't see Case because she wasn't paying attention and drove through a stop light. The driver was ticketed for disregarding a signal.
