NCAA: Louisville Cardinals DE Lorenzo Mauldin in Moped Accident

Louisville Cardinals junior defensive end Lorenzo Mauldin was involved in an on-campus moped accident on Tuesday, but was "alert and responsive" at the hospital.

Louisville Cardinals junior defensive end Lorenzo Mauldin was involved in an on-campus hit-and-run moped accident on Tuesday. 

According to the Louisville Courier-Journal's Jonathan Linter, Mauldin rode his moped going north on Floyd Street near the KFC Yum! Center practice facility at 8:45 a.m. when a car making its turn collided with Mauldin's moped. The car sped off after the incident, according to several witnesses. 

Mauldin was taken to the Jewish Hospital where he underwent some tests before being declared by physicians to be "in satisfactory condition," per Linter. University of Louisville spokesperson Rocco Gasparro said Mauldin will remain in the hospital overnight for further observation. 

He also added the player was not wearing a helmet when he was struck by the car. 

Cardinals head coach Charlie Strong said after Tuesday's practice that Mauldin revealed he still had some pain and soreness after he paid him a visit. Upon learning that he could be released as early as Wednesday, Strong hailed it as "good news," per the Huffington Post

"That's going to be the doctor's call, that's not my call. We'll be able to get him back out there and then just see how it goes after tomorrow...It won't be a distraction because we have enough players ready to go play." 

He also added the accident won't result in any restrictions against players who drive mopeds

On his part, Mauldin was a starter at defensive end for the Cardinals in 2012 and registered a career-high 22 tackles. He also led the team with 4.5 sacks. 

His status for the season opener against the Ohio Bobcats on Sunday, which previously listed him as the starter, is still uncertain, according to the Associated Press via Fox Sports. If Mauldin sits this one out, junior B.J. Dubose, who had 15 tackles in seven games last season, could be tapped by Strong to fill in for him. 

The 6'4", 243-pound Mauldin was described by Strong during last Monday's press conference as someone who goes "100 miles (an hour) and it doesn't matter (whether) it's in shorts or full pads. His tempo, that's the way he goes."

Another University of Louisville spokesperson, John Drees, said authorities are now hunting a champagne-colored sedan or compact car which hit Mauldin's moped.
