Vehicle hits another car before veering off road into front bedroom of house

A car smashed a hole into the house of four UA students yesterday afternoon.

No one was inside the house, but resident Emily Severson can no longer sleep in her room, and water is shut off to the entire house at 1544 E. Mabel St.

The vehicle that hit the house was going southbound on Cherry Avenue when another car failed to yield right-of-way at the stop sign, said University of Arizona Police Department Sgt. Robert Sommerfeld.

"They collided, and the (car) jumped the curb, came through the front yard and ran through the front bedroom," he said.

No one was injured.

The driver that failed to yield, Abe Chanin, was issued a citation for failing to yield at a stop sign, said UAPD Officer Chris Olson.

Bank search should yield a result soon

Seven months after DM Federal Credit Union declined to renew a contract with the UA to be the official university banking partner, the search for a replacement continues.

Although the university should exercise careful judgment while reviewing possible partners, the campus community should also not be left in waiting forever. The University of Arizona has an obligation to provide its population with a secure institution. So, even though the new partner should be selected wisely, students should be able to enjoy the benefits of a banking partner in the near future.
