Four Syracuse lacrosse players were involved in a car accident early Sunday morning near Thornden Park.
A Toyota carrying the four athletes was traveling southbound on Ostrom Avenue at 2:35 a.m. when a Ford SUV coming out of Thornden Park struck it, said Sgt. Gary Bulinski of the Syracuse Police Department.
The driver of the SUV, Joshua Bonhardt, 31, of Syracuse, was ticketed for driving the wrong way on a one-way street, Bulinski said.
Two of the students, Scott Loy, a junior midfielder for the Syracuse men’s lacrosse team, and Alyssa Costantino, a junior goaltender for the Syracuse women’s lacrosse team, were both taken to the hospital with minor injuries. Loy complained of neck pain and Costantino complained of facial pain, Bulinski said.
The driver of the car, Amy Cross, a junior midfielder on the women’s lacrosse team, and Bridget Daley, a senior midfielder on the women’s lacrosse team and passenger in the car, were not injured, Bulinski said.
Susan Mehringer and Mike Morrison, both assistant directors of athletic communications, said they had not heard about the accident and had no further details about the conditions of the athletes.
