TRU men’s volleyball team player passes away, two others in critical condition after collision


A member of Thompson Rivers University’s men’s volleyball team has passed away and two teammates have suffered “life-altering” injuries after a multi-vehicle collision in Kamloops. The students were in a car that was involved in a multi-car accident after it was struck by an out-of-control vehicle. “It is hard to find words that express how we feel in these moments, in the face of such inexplicable tragedy,” said TRU President Brett Fairbairn. “Our most sincere thoughts are with their families and loved ones, and on behalf of TRU, I offer our deepest condolences. We grieve with them, along with others, including their teammates, friends, classmates, and professors. This is a loss for the TRU community that will be felt for a long time.”
