Dustin Peyton, senior in biology, was struck by a car about 9:45 a.m. Monday at the intersection of Lincoln Way and Hyland Avenue.

Ames Police Cmdr. Mike Brennan said Peyton was not seriously injured.

Driver Shannon Danner, junior in pre-business, was charged with failure to yield to a pedestrian in a crosswalk and failure to stop and give information and render aid in a personal injury accident.

“Apparently Danner didn’t realize she had struck him and she drove home,” Brennan said.

Brennan said Peyton was transported to Mary Greeley Medical Center following the accident and was in the process of being released at about 2 p.m.
