Penn State Student Killed In Crash

by Geoff Rushton

A Penn State student died following a one-vehicle accident Tuesday night.

Nicolai Tereschak, 22, was killed in the crash at about 9:50 p.m. along Route 191 in Salem Township in Wayne County in Northeastern Pennsylvania, according to the Hawley (Pa.) News Eagle. Tereschak, of Greentown, was an English major at the University Park campus.

State Police at Honesdale said Tereschak’s 2002 Pontiac Bonneville left the road when he failed to negotiate a left curve in the road. The car struck a mailbox then continued through a grassy area and hit a large, wooden billboard frame before coming to rest in a field.

The Wayne County Coroner ruled that Tereschak died of multiple traumatic injuries from the impact. Tereschak was the only the person in the car and was wearing his seatbelt.

Tereschak is the second Penn State University Park student in a week killed in a car accident. Byron Markle, 20, died in a one-vehicle crash Sept. 9 on North Atherton Street.
