The vice president for Student Affairs, Damon Sims, put out this statement, “The Penn State community and all who know the good work done through student involvement in THON are deeply saddened by this tragedy”. The college student who had been a passenger was pronounced dead at the scene of the vehicle crash in Charleston Township, Pennsylvania along Pennsylvania Turnpike road. The accident happened after the students were returning after a weekend of raising funds for student run THON charity, which raises money to fight pediatric cancer.
