Campus Mourns Two Victims of Traffic Accidents
Bookmark and Share


Cornell is mourning two members of the University community who died in separate traffic accidents in recent days—both cases of pedestrians being struck by vehicles.

On Saturday, Oluchukwu Onuora, a twenty-three-year-old senior in CALS’s Dyson School of Applied Economics and Management, died after being hit by a car while walking on an Ithaca-area road. A native of Nigeria, Onuora grew up in West Harrison, New York.

And on Monday, Angela Stedwell, a fifty-five-year-old administrative assistant in Human Ecology, was killed by a Tompkins County Area Transit bus near Robert Purcell Community Center on North Campus.

No charges have been filed in Onuora’s death, and Monday’s accident remains under investigation.
