    ISU student dies from injuries suffered in pedestrian accident | Des Moines Register Staff Blogs


    Thoughts and prayers for Jonathan Brown's family. Tragic story, looks like he was a big cyclone fan according to his facebook page.



    “One day we’ll be in here celebrating a Big 12 championship,” Rhoads said. “That I can promise you.”

    "I hope to coach here until I retire," Hoiberg said.

    Re: ISU Student passes away after being hit after Tech game

    Ive about hit kids running across the street in the dark after games too. I feel bad for all parties here.

    Prayers for the family of the kid hit as well as the guy who hit him.

    Probably lucky there arent more accidents with the mess of pedestrian and vehicle traffic after games. Really could use a tunnel or something near S-16th to get rid of the mix of traffic there, and also improve traffic flow out of stadium parking lots and on university (as officers wouldnt have to be stopping traffic for long periods just for crowds to go across)

    There are an exorbitant amount of people that have died in Ames by being hit by vehicles (cars, trains, buses). Odd and sad.


    There was one?

    After all the tragic deaths that occurred in Ames last year and the conversations that took place on CF after said tragedies, I think the post was fitting.

    At least an elevated walkway or two. I recall this subject was brought up at one time, and a city or ISU official called them "ugly." I dunno, lots of campuses have them...

    Yeah, and it all depends how you build them. I could see an elevated walkway near south 16th with the south side being a 'welcome to iowa state' gateway to incoming traffic.

    Though people might be more likely to put the tunnels to use than the bridges.

    Re: ISU Student passes away after being hit after Tech game

    man, driving on/near campus is horrible. So many people walking out into traffic. After football games its worse. You look down for a half of a split second and something like this happens. I hit a kid on his bike with about 100 different things going on around me. Thank God he was ok. Its so nerve racking and frustrating!!

    Re: ISU Student passes away after being hit after Tech game

    Saw the scene as we were driving to get home after the game last week. It happened by the Christian school.

    Hard to believe cars were driving very fast as traffic usually crawls in that area after a game.

    Terrible and sad news.

    Re: ISU Student passes away after being hit after Tech game

    That was sad news. That is another reason to hang around and let the traffic thin out after the game.

    Re: ISU Student passes away after being hit after Tech game

    Hey guys, I appreciate all the kind works. I am Jonathan Brown's brother in-law. My wife is his sister. I got us tickets for last weekends game and took him and my other brother in-law and his kid. It was a horrible scene. I saw everything happen. We have no idea where that car came from. Go to www.carepages.com/carepages/jonathanbrown and make a username to see his progress over the last week. Our family updated his status a couple times a day. Im so sad to see him go, but we know he's in a better place now.
