This thread likely will need to be moved, but I know of at least one person who attended Taylor University, so I thought I'd post this here.

MARION, Ind. -- A semitrailer crashed through an Interstate 69 median and collided with a Taylor University van Wednesday night, killing five people and injuring five others, police said.
All of those killed were Taylor students who were traveling back to the school's Upland campus after working to set up for a Thursday banquet at its Fort Wayne campus, school spokesman Jim Garringer said. Four other passengers believed to be Taylor studenters were in the van.
The collision happened about 2 miles north of the Marion exit in Grant County, closing the interstate in both directions, state police Sgt. Rodger Popplewell said.
Police had the southbound lanes shut off and northbound traffic was limited to one lane only.
Two helicopters from Fort Wayne had landed and transported the injured to trauma centers at Parkview Hospital, Fort Wayne.
Taylor spokesman Jim Garringer confirmed that the van was Taylor-owned and was being used for official purposes, but could not confirm who was on board.
