Two Students Killed, Two Injured After Four-Car Crash In Elgin
A four-car crash near the entrance of Judson University has killed two students and injured two other students. The Daily Herald reported on the tragedy.
The crash happened around 9:15 PM and two of the students were killed at the scene, both architecture students at the university. The two injured individuals were taken to Advocate Sherman Hospital in Elgin for injuries. One has since been released.
According to the police report, the students were traveling south on State Street and turning onto Judson Drive. Three vehicles traveling north on State Street got tangled up with the car in a chain-reaction crash with the students. Two other people in those vehicles were also injured and hospitalized, but are expected to survive.
All the students were part of the architecture school at the university and were about to graduate.
“We are deeply saddened and mourn this tragic loss tonight. We grieve with the families and ask for prayers for the students and their families,” Judson President Gene Crume said in a news release posted on the university’s website. “Our prayers are also with the students who were injured and who will be impacted by this tragic accident. We continue to trust in God who walks alongside us in every situation.”
We also wish to extend our condolences and hope the police finish their investigation quickly to find out what happened.
