Bowling Green Crash
March 3, 2012 by staff
Bowling Green Crash, Flowers were left outside a Bowling Green State University sorority house and state troopers dropped off luggage retrieved from the highway as the school started spring break by mourning the deaths of three students killed when their car was slammed into by a wrong-way driver on an Ohio interstate.
The vehicle had traveled the wrong way for several miles and was being pursued by police when it narrowly missed one car full of sorority sisters, then collided into another early Friday on Interstate 75 south of Toledo, Ohio state troopers said.
The crash killed the three students and the wrong-way driver, whose vehicle was engulfed in flames. Two surviving sorority sisters were in critical condition Friday night at a Toledo hospital.
The five Alpha Xi Delta members were just miles from the school as they caravanned with 11 other sisters in separate cars to the Detroit airport for a spring break trip to the Dominican Republic. Spring break began Saturday for the university of about 18,000 students, located about 30 miles south of Toledo.
Sophomore Christina Goyett, who was among those killed, had visited with her family in Michigan hours earlier at a surprise 60th birthday party for her mother, said Dee Bishop, a family friend. The 19-year-old from Bay City, Mich., was studying teacher education and was excited about her first trip to the Caribbean country.
