A Fargo man was booked in the Clay County Jail Saturday morning after a vehicle struck a pedestrian on the Minnesota State University Moorhead campus.

Jordan Stephan Risher, 22, faces criminal vehicular operation and third-degree DWI charges.

A release from Moorhead Police says an officer came across the accident at 12:15 this morning near the 1300 block of Sixth Avenue South. Police say the driver of the vehicle attempted to make an abrupt turn heading east into the U Lot of MSUM and struck Joshua Michael Wegener, 20, of Moorhead.

Police say Wegener was walking on the sidewalk before the crash.

Wegener was taken to a local hospital by FM Ambulance with non-life threatening injuries to his arm and knee.
