Posted On Behalf of Schmidt Kramer Injury Lawyers on May 14, 2012 in General
A 21-year-old male physical education major at Slippery Rock University in Slippery Rock, Pennsylvania, died in a car accident on the morning of Saturday, September 10.
The Rocket—SRU’s student newspaper—reports that the college senior had been the passenger in a 2001 Ford Escape driven by a 20-year-old female physical education major.
The driver reportedly proceeded through the intersection of Branchton Road and Route 8 around 2:30 a.m. Saturday morning and struck the side of tractor-trailer, which had been traveling north on Route 8. The Escape then spun clockwise so that the rear of the vehicle hit the tractor-trailer. The impact ejected the 21-year-old male, who was pronounced dead at the scene. Also in the car at the time were three males and one female SRU student. “The group had left a party and [the driver] hadn’t had anything to drink, so she volunteered to drive,” reports The Rocket.
The deceased was vice president of alumni relations for the Green and White Society and was also a member of the Physical Education Club and Phi Epsilon Kappa.
