(WTNH)– A Quinnipiac student has been killed in a car crash in Milford, Massachusetts, according to police. Nineteen-year-old Jacqueline Gray, a member of the Class of 2019 and a dean’s list student majoring in psychology, succumbed to her injuries early Monday morning.
Police said the crash happened at around 10 p.m. Sunday, as Gray and five of her friends were on their way to watch a fireworks show. The driver of the car, a 2003 Ford Explorer, told investigators that the brakes in the vehicle went out, causing her to lose control and hit the utility pole. At one point, she told passengers they should jump from the car, according to police.
Investigators said alcohol wasn’t involved in the crash.
Quinnipiac University released the following statement Monday:
“It was with profound sadness that we informed our university community today about the loss of Jacqueline Gray, a member of the Class of 2019 who was a dean’s list student majoring in psychology in the College of Arts and Sciences. There are no words to adequately express our sympathy to Jacqueline’s family and friends.”
