emily-trump jonathan-quigleyTwo students from the Schreyer Honors College died in a car accident near Carroll Township on June 6. Jonathan Quigley, Emily Trump and driver Gregory Bretz were traveling in a car early in the morning when it veered off the road and crashed into a tree. Johnathan Quigley was pronounced dead at the scene, while Emily Trump passed away in the hospital later that day. Bretz is listed in serious condition at the Hershey Medical Center as of Saturday evening.

The Sentinel (a newspaper from Cumberland County) reported this about the accident:

Police said Bretz was driving a 1994 Ford Ranger west on Fox Hollow Road when, at about 6:10 a.m., it veered to the left, crossed the eastbound lane and traveled off the roadway. The vehicle ran over some bushes before hitting the tree.

The accident comes after another Penn State student drowned in Tennessee in late May. May they all rest in peace.
