Exchange student hurt after being hit by truck


An exchange student at the University of Cincinnati is listed in serious condition after being hit by pick up truck Tuesday morning.

It happened just before 9 a.m. at the intersection of Clifton Avenue and Martin Luther King Drive.

Cincinnati police say that five exchange students were standing at a traffic island when Stuart Nizny, 44, driving a 1998 Dodge Dakota, lost control of his vehicle and struck two people.

Nizny also hit a metal pole that landed on a gold SUV.

Lei Feng, 21, was transported to UC hospital with minor injuries. He is listed in stable condition.

John Lentes, 27, was also taken to UC hospital with a severe head injury. He is currently listed in critical condition.

Nizny was wearing a seatbelt and was not injured in the crash.

Alcohol and speed do not appear to be factors.

The incident remains under investigation. Police say they are facing a language barrier that is complicating the investigation.
