On Tuesday October 23, Coach John Frye got into a car crash while driving to work. He was in the parking lot near McDonald’s when the incident occurred.

“The driver was trying to turn into the parking lot and trying to make that way across,” said Frye. “I was pulling out and as I was coming we hit each other.”

In the mornings students report that driving to any of the buildings at Lake is hectic due to students getting dropped off or trying to find a place to park.

“It wasn’t a student, but it all happened so quickly that was one of those things that it’s hard to react to,” said Frye. “It was a hard situation because if I would’ve swerved I would maybe hit a car that was coming out from the parking lot so it was kind of a tight situation.”

Luckily no other cars were caught in the accident and both drivers didn’t have any major injuries, Frye was able to return to work with only a few scrapes on his hands.

“It was a situation where myself and the other party that was involved was able to handle that situation, no police officers were called,” said Frye. The driver was compliant and exchanged information with Frye.

Frye’s car has some cosmetic damage, but the more pressing issue for him was that the airbag went off and made the accident seem worse than it actually was.

“It’s going to be interesting to see how it plays out but insurance is handling it and as many people say that’s why we pay for insurance is to protect you or to help you, if a situation like that happens.” Said Frye.

Most importantly, no deaths occurred and no one was seriously injured on campus.
