College Mourns 2 Students Killed in Crash

Students and faculty at Sterling College in Rice County are mourning two juniors at the school who died in a car collision.
25-year-old Xavier Bradford of Lancaster, California, and 21-year-old Esther Jenkerson of Datil, New Mexico, were killed in the accident Monday morning.

Authorities say the vehicle that Bradford and Jenkerson were traveling in collided with a semitrailer in Reno County. The semitrailer’s driver was not injured in the incident.

Bradford had been studying writing and was a player on the football team. Jenkerson was an athletic training major at the college of about 650 students.

Students gathered Monday evening to remember the two and listen as Sterling College Chaplain Christian Dashiell spoke.
