Missouri S&T Holds Memorial After Fatal Crash
ROLLA - Students and professors at the Missouri University of Science and Technology paid tribute to four graduate students from India who died in a recent car wreck.
The memorial service was held Monday on the university's campus in Rolla.
Two of the students had graduated just days before the May 8 crash and were preparing to start new jobs in the St. Louis area. A fifth student suffered serious injuries and remains hospitalized.
The school attracts many foreign students, including hundreds from India.
The students were on a Lake of the Ozarks shopping trip when 22-year-old Murali Bottu lost control of the car he was driving on Missouri State Highway 42, crossed the center line and collided with a pickup truck.
Bottu is the lone survivor among the students.
