Baylor University is grieving tonight
over the deaths of four students in a tragic accident that occurred
in College Station.
A total of six people were killed and two were injured early
Sunday when a pickup ran off Farm Road Sixty around midnight and
plowed into a group of students. The students were in front of the
Tau Kappa Epsilon house when the vehicle hit them. They were
getting ready to go to a party at the house, witnesses say. Large
puddles of blood and pieces of mangled chrome were still visible
Baylor President Robert B. Sloan released a statement this
afternoon asking the student body, faculty and staff to pray for
those touched by the loss.
Baylor students that died in the accident are:
18-year-old Tricia Calp of Houston, 22-year-old Dolan Wostal of Alvin, Texas, 18-year-old Emily Hollister of South Bend, Ind. Erika Lanham, whose age and hometown was unavailable. 21-year-old Texas A & M student Ted Bruton of San Angelo, Texas, and 22-year-old Southwest Texas State University student William Flores of San Marcos, Texas were also
Five people died at the scene. Miss Lanham died after being
transported to a local hospital.
The driver of the vehicle, 18-year-old A & M student Brandon Kallmeyer of Katy, Texas, apparently fell asleep at the
wheel. He was not injured and alcohol did not appear to be a factor, police say.
Police have referred the case to Brazos County prosecutors
without recommending charges against Kallmeyer.
