Pitt-Bradford Student, Father, Killed In NY Car Crash

We received the following statement from Dr. Alexander this evening:

Dear members of the campus community,
It is with great sadness that I inform you that one of our students, Khalil Walker, was killed in a traffic accident this morning in New York along with his father.

This is an especially hard time to lose someone. As you return to campus next week, please remember that if you need to speak to someone, there are many of us who will be here to listen.

Three men died and five other people were hurt, some of them seriously, in a multi-vehicle wreck on the Cross Bronx Expressway early Tuesday that snarled the post-holiday commute. 

Police said a tractor-trailer on the eastbound side of the highway stopped fairly abruptly near Webster Avenue around 5:45 a.m. because of traffic ahead. A pickup truck behind the 18-wheeler also stopped, but another tractor-trailer behind the pickup couldn't stop in time and caused a chain-reaction collision.

The second 18-wheeler hit the pickup truck and a Toyota Corolla, launching the smaller vehicle onto the center divide of the highway and trapping the pickup under the tractor-trailer, police said.

Three men in the pickup were pronounced dead at the scene. Two of them have been identified as 21-year-old Khalil J. Walker of Tobbyhanna, Pennsylvania, and 51-year-old Henry Walker of Livingston, New Jersey. The identity of the 58-year-old man is pending family notification.
