Durham police said officers were called to the campus on Simcoe Street North for reports of a man who had been run over by a vehicle at around 8:10 p.m.

Police said a 20-year-old student was found with serious injuries, including a broken leg and shoulder on Commencement Drive.

Investigators said the student was playing a game called “Capture the Brick” with other fraternity members when he thought he had found the brick in a white 2020 Mini Cooper.
