Car accident kills Iowa State University student
A car accident that took place Sunday night in St. Paul, Minnesota left a 21-year-old Iowa State University student dead.
The accident occurred when the student, a former hockey player, was merging lanes on I-94 when he hit another vehicle causing that vehicle to spin. The student chose to help the individual he hit by getting out of his car and walking over to the other stopped vehicle.
As he was assisting with the other driver, an oncoming car, driven by a 62-year-old man, crashed into him and he was killed instantly. The 62-year-old man is believed to have been under the influence of alcohol at the time of the accident and has been charged with a DWI as well as criminal vehicular operation.
Our thoughts and prayers are with the family and friends of the victim during this difficult time.
