UB student dies in fatal car accident
A 20-year-old international student from Taiwan died in a one-car accident on Millersport Highway at 5 a.m. Thursday. UB Spokesman John Della Contrada said the university will not be releasing the name of the student until the family is notified.
Amherst Police (APD) said the vehicle was headed northbound on Millersport Highway, crossed over a median and went airborne before crossing the three southbound lanes. The car came to a stop about 50 yards from the Coventry Road entrance to the university. The male student was alone in the vehicle, APD said.
APD is investigating the cause of the accident and is unsure of the speed the vehicle was traveling.
Counseling services are available for friends and classmates of the student.
