Two Greek Men/Football Player Dead In Two Incidents at University of Idaho

This is also posted in Greek Life, but I decided to post it here as well. The two fraternity members reportedly were riding on Mopeds. No word on whether they were wearing helmets. Thankfully, there is no mention of alcohol.

Be careful -- those cars are a lot bigger than little motorbikes.

Two University of Idaho Students Die in Motorcycle Crash, Both from Boise

By Melinda O'Malley
BOISE -
The University of Idaho reports two students, both from Boise died after a weekend motorcycle accident near campus.

The U of I reports Jack Shannon, a sophomore communications students and 19 year old Jason Yearout, who was in the Theater and Film Program both died from their injuries. No other details about the accident were available.

Both men were in the Delta Sigma Phi Fraternity.

Tim White, the University of Idaho President released this statement in connection with the deaths of all three men. (Including 19 year old Eric McMillan who was shot and killed over the weekend)

"We extend our heartfelt sympathies to the families and friends of our students, Eric, Jack and Jason.... The loss leaves a sense of.. profound sadness. Words seem inadequate to express the depths of our feelings... The University of Idaho is a community of strong interconnections, and these tragedies affect us all. At times of such deep sorrow, we comfort each other by pulling together and supporting one another as we work through these tragic events."

The third man, Eric McMillan was a UI Football player. According to the newspaper, two men from Seattle are suspected in the shooting. They say the motive may be revenge.
