Washington University police have taken the driver of a vehicle that reportedly struck two undergraduates near the Brookings steps late Sunday night into custody. Sophomores Shana Zucker and Richard Lee were in fair condition at Barnes-Jewish Hospital as of 10:20 a.m., a media representative for Barnes-Jewish confirmed.
