Sheriff’s Office: Two students killed in Wednesday car accident

The Harnett County Sheriff’s Office informed Campbell University officials at about 5:45 p.m. Wednesday that two students died as a result of a car accident that occurred this afternoon.

The accident appears to be weather related.

Campbell officials ask for prayers for the family and friends of the students and for patience as the Sheriff’s Office continues its investigation. Counselors, chaplains and ministers are available to meet with students who would like to speak with someone.

The University will not release the names of the students until their families have been notified. We will have more information on the accident and the University’s response early Thursday.
