  • Around 6:49 p.m. on Oct. 28 at the intersection of W. Moss Avenue and N. Glenwood Avenue, a Bradley student driver collided with a university safety cruiser with no passengers.

The worker accidentally mixed up the addresses and delivered it to the neighbor’s house.

  • Around 8:20 p.m. on Nov. 2 at the Main Street Commons parking lot, a student and alumnus called the police claiming that they were suffering from an overdose.

Both were transported to OSF Saint Francis Medical Center for treatment.
