MARTIN, TN -

(WMC-TV) – There are new details regarding the hazing allegations at the University of Tennessee-Martin. Action News 5 has learned that the Alpha Tau Omega recruit at the center of it all could lose an eye.

Investigators say the victim and other new recruits were apparently blindfolded by fraternity members, dropped off and told to fend for themselves.

He was walking along the road early Thursday morning when he was hit by a side mirror of a full-size pick-up truck.

The driver of the truck is not a student or fraternity member.

He is charged with vehicular assault.
