230340; Maintenance Issue; Reed College Apartments

“Notes: A CSM responded to a request for assistance at the RCA parking lot. Upon arrival, the CSM observed that one of the rear wheels of a Reed van was hanging in the air over a set of stairs. The driver stated that they had not been able to see the stairs behind them as they were backing up, which resulted in one of the wheels hanging over the edge of the descending staircase. The CSM requested a tow truck which was eventually able to safely pull the vehicle forward so that all four wheels were again on the ground. There appeared to be minimal resulting damage to the van.”

Are the stairs okay?
