Question of the Day
4 students connected to band member’s death dismissed
ORLANDO | Florida A&M University said it’s dismissing four students for their role in the death of a marching-band member last month, while audio of an emergency call released Thursday showed that the drum major had vomit in his mouth in the moments before he died.
University President James Ammons referred to the dismissals in a memo he sent earlier this week to members of the FAMU Board of Trustees but didn’t specify what the four students had done. Authorities say hazing played a role in the death of Robert Champion, but they have not released any specifics as they continue to investigate.
Mr. Champion, 26, was found unresponsive Nov. 19 on a bus parked outside an Orlando hotel after the school’s football team lost to a rival.
1 killed in foggy crash involving 179 cars
HENDERSONVILLE | A small car plowed into the back of a mail truck early Thursday, killing one person in one of several chain-reaction collisions of 50 cars on a fogbound highway near Nashville.
It appeared the car struck stopped traffic during the morning commute, said Ray McLaughlin, a district chief with the Hendersonville Fire Department. As the fog lifted, damaged vehicles could be seen along a mile of the Vietnam Veterans Parkway in Hendersonville.
Mr. McLaughlin said emergency workers counted 179 vehicles stopped at the crash scene, 50 of which had collided.
Paul Warren, 28, of Hendersonville, was killed, said Shawna Zodi, a spokeswoman for Hendersonville Medical Center. She said eight people were released after treatment for minor injuries.
The Sumner County Emergency Management Agency said ambulances took 17 people to the hospital.
Other than the one death, most of the injuries were neck and back complaints, Mr. McLaughlin said.
