Students Killed in Freak Accident
Thursday, 28 February 2013

February 28--  Two Brewton Parker College students were killed Thursday afternoon when a tree fell on their truck as they were traveling on U.S. Highway 280 in Ailey.

ImageCollege President Dr. Mike Simoneaux said 20-year-old Johnathan Bell of Monticello and 19-year-old Kevin Camp of Shady Dale were on their way to junior varsity baseball practice when the accident happened.

A huge pine tree, its roots undermined by recent rains, was apparently toppled by wind and fell directly on the small S-10 pickup.  

College officials and area ministers met with the college student body early Thursday evening to tell students what happened.

Dr. Simoneaux says a memorial service will be held later.
