Missouri students killed in tragic car accident

Car accidents in and of themselves are frightening and often very overwhelming, but when an accident causes serious injuries or death, many people may be left devastated. A recent car accident has claimed the lives of not one, but four students in Missouri. The driver, also a student, sustained severe injuries as a result of the crash.

The accident occurred when the students were on their way to Lake of the Ozarks to go shopping. According to reports, the driver of the vehicle made an overcorrection on Highway 42 after he veered out of his lane. As a result, the vehicle was hit by an oncoming truck.

The four passengers in the vehicle, all originally from India, were killed on impact. The driver, also from India, is currently being treated for critical injuries. All of the car accident victims were students at Missouri University of Science and Technology. Two of them had graduated days before the accident.

Friends of the victims have rallied around the driver and are mourning the tragic loss of the four students. Relatives of the victims are currently en route from India. Reports have confirmed that the driver of the truck sustained no injuries and his passenger is expected to recover fully.

Officials from the university have stated that a memorial service may be conducted later in the year. No additional information has been released concerning the prognosis of the driver. Missouri law enforcement officials have made no additional statement concerning the cause of the accident.
