Scranton Police cited the driver who struck University student, Christian Donisi, Tuesday afternoon with failure to yield to a pedestrian and for driving without a valid driver’s license, Stan Zymunt, Director of News & Media Relations, said.

Christian Donisi, 22, of Haddon Township, N.J., was hit by a car on Mulberry Street at approximately 12:45 p.m.

Donisi was later released from Geisinger-Community Medical Center around 3 p.m. after receiving a CT scan and X-rays, University senior and friend, Josh Colón said.

“He’s fine now,” Colón said. “No serious injuries. He doesn’t have broken bones and his head is fine.”

Donisi was traveling south from Pilarz Hall toward The University of Scranton campus when he was struck in the pedestrian crosswalk.
