Penn State Freshman Dies After Being Hit by Truck
State College police have confirmed reports that a Penn State student hit by a truck while jogging earlier this month has died.
Freshman Eva O'Brian was struck along North Atherton Street by a pickup truck at 9:46 a.m. on July 3. After being taken to Mt. Nittany Hospital, she was later transferred to the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania.
Sunday morning, the Philadelphia coroner's office told police that O'Brian had passed away from injuries resulting from the accident. The notification was not a full coroner's report and did not detail the nature of her injuries or list a cause of death. Police say a full autopsy is scheduled.
A Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania spokesperson also confirmed O'Brian died, but was unable to provide details.
