COLUMBIA — Elizabeth Chang, an associate professor of English at MU, was in fair condition at University Hospital on Tuesday morning after being struck in an apparent hit-and-run incident on South Garth Street on Monday afternoon.
Although the Columbia Police Department could not be reached, Peter Stieplemen, district assistant superintendent of elementary education, reported that the incident was a hit and run, Columbia Public Schools spokeswoman Michelle Baumstark said.
Stieplemen is married to Chang, who was a 2011 winner of the William T. Kemper Fellowship in Teaching Excellence.
Baumstark did not know details of the incident but said Chang had non-life-threatening injuries.
