The two cars collided at about 9:00 PM at night, just outside Watkinsville, Georgia. The girls were driving a white Toyota Camry, and the driver of the other car is currently hospitalized. Officials don’t know why the girls’ car drifted into the other lane, but they don’t think alcohol or other drugs were involved. “For an unknown reason, a vehicle crossed the center line and struck another vehicle,” said Georgia State Patrol Sergeant Scott Andrews. This is just heartbreaking.
The students’ families are undoubtedly beside themselves, and the University of Georgia President Jere Morehead has released a statement on behalf of the school. “We are deeply saddened to learn of the heartbreaking and tragic loss of four students and critical injuries to another student in a terrible car accident last night outside of Athens,” he said. “We extend our deepest condolences to the families and friends of our students who were victims…we ask that you keep these students and their family and friends in your thoughts and prayers.” The magnitude of this tragedy is so hard to comprehend. A memorial is being held tonight, April 28, on campus, and a candlelight vigil will happen at a student apartment complex nearby.
