KOKOMO — Faculty and students at Indiana University Kokomo have paid tribute to two students killed this month when a motorist driving the wrong way on a state highway collided with their car.
Communication Arts lecturer Joann Kaiser recalled 18-year-old Ethan Richman of Kokomo and 19-year-old Lea Byers of Greentown as hard-working, well-liked students who were determined to get into IU’s nursing program.
Kaiser said during Tuesday’s memorial at the Kresge Auditorium that Richman and Byers had been a couple for about two years and were together constantly.
The Kokomo Tribune reports Richman was driving April 3 along U.S. 24 in Miami County when an 86-year-old motorist driving the wrong way in eastbound lanes collided head-on with his car.
The couple and the elderly driver were pronounced dead at the scene.
