The following incidents were reported in the USC Dept. of Public Safety incident report summary between Monday, March 21, and Tuesday, March 22. 

Crimes against a person

Miscellaneous incidents

At 4:04 p.m. on March 21, a student riding a bicycle was struck by a vehicle near the intersection of Adams Boulevard and Portland Street. She was injured but did not seek medical treatment.

At 6:55 p.m. on March 21, a USC staff member driving a University-owned vehicle collided with a non-USC driver outside the USC area. The amount of damage was not specified.

At 12:52 a.m. on March 22, a coffee cup caught fire in a microwave oven at Parkside International Residential College. A student pulled a fire alarm, but the fire extinguished itself within the microwave and did not spread.


The March 22 edition of the Daily Trojan contained an error. In the article “USC holds first human rights conference,” the Daily Trojan misquoted Mike Brand as saying that “The development on campus is a really great example of grad students and GAPA coming together to work on such important issues.” The students are working together on important issues and GAPA is an example of grassroots, top-level advocacy.

The Daily Trojan regrets the error.
