Penn State Student Dies in Fatal Pedestrian Crash

Penn State tragically lost one of its own last night in a fatal pedestrian crash. Penn State Engineering student Michael Eiben was crossing North Atherton Street at the Curtin Road intersection at 10:48 p.m. Monday when he was struck by a car driving  southbound, according to a State College Police release.

Eiben was transported to the Mount Nittany Medical Center and then life-flighted to Geisinger Medical Center where he was pronounced dead.

The preliminary investigation revealed that Joel Berger, 27, of State College, was driving the vehicle that struck Eiben. The accident is currently under investigation and no additional information was released. Police are urging anyone with information about this accident to contact the State College Police Department.
