College homecoming king killed in car crash

It is always tragic when a young person dies in a motor vehicle accident. On Oct. 20, a 23-year-old Morgan State University senior with a promising future died in a car accident at approximately 10:30 p.m. The crash took place in the Fells Point neighborhood in Baltimore, and resulted in the death of an 18-year-old front seat passenger in another vehicle.

The student was homecoming king at the university, and he was scheduled to graduate soon with a degree in telecommunications. He had already been hired to work at the Maryland Transit Administration (MTA) after graduation. He had previously interned there, spearheading the agency's social media projects, including projects on Facebook and Twitter. An MTA spokesman stated that he had helped create the MTA's slogan, "Ride, Respect, Relax," and that he had also worked on aspects of the agency's public safety campaign.

The student was driving a Dodge Durango and traveling north when his vehicle and a Mitsubishi Eclipse crashed into each other. Police investigators speculated that one of the vehicles may have been speeding and are looking into the possibility that one of them continued into the intersection despite a red light. Officers were reported to be planning to conduct interviews with a number of persons believed to have witnessed the accident.

Police also reported that the driver of the Mitsubishi and a passenger in the Dodge were injured, but these injuries were described as minor.

According to a story in the Baltimore Sun, students at Morgan State University were in mourning for the popular senior, and grief counselors were available to help students cope with the tragedy.
