The father of a St. Thomas student slipped and fell Monday on the corner of Selby and Cleveland avenues as he was coming to campus with a student during the first significant snowfall of the year.
“He was crossing the street and he slipped on the ice … in the road,” Dan Meuwissen, director of Public Safety, said.
The man was attentive and responsive when he taken from the scene by emergency responders to a hospital. He had no outward signs of injury.
Meuwissen said a number of phone calls came in about the incident and that traffic was diverted from the area while university responders took care of the man.
A dusting of snow fell over the campus Monday morning, but the weather forecast was for temperatures to climb up throughout the week to nearly 50 by Wednesday.
