UCO Student Among Four Killed In Crash At OSU Homecoming Parade
EDMOND, Oklahoma - A student from the University of Central Oklahoma was among the four fatalities from the crash at OSU's homecoming parade.
Nikita Nakal, of Mumbai, India, was an MBA student at UCO and died from injuries suffered during the Saturday morning crash.
"While our thoughts and prayers are with the Oklahoma State University community tonight following the tragic events during OSU’s homecoming parade this morning, it is with deep sadness that I ask you to extend those sentiments to the family and friends of one of our own students," UCO president Don Betz said Saturday.
"Our students come to Central with their unique goals, hopes and dreams, and Nikita was undoubtedly no different. While we mourn the potential unrealized, let us also honor her life by pulling closer and appreciating the strength of our Broncho family."
Betz said anyone in need of support in the UCO community is asked to call the Center for Counseling and Well-Being at (405) 974-2215.
