Three Minnesota State University students died Tuesday when their van - packed with students who have worked since August for an engineering competition this weekend in Detroit- crossed a Michigan freeway median into the path of two oncoming semis.The students, whose identities were not released Tuesday pending notification of relatives, were part of a group of 15 on their way to compete in the Society of Automotive Engineers Formula Series student competition. Many of the 15 picked up their college diplomas Saturday.
Today I went to a tree planting in honor of these students, sponsored by all the other teams in the event. About 20 people from MSU came. A few of them will spend the night with me. The accident happened a few weeks back, there past the state of shock, and now the reality is setting in.
Its left me feeling very sad, that such bright lights are now gone.
