Three members of the WestConn Men’s Lacrosse Team were involved in a deadly traffic accident Friday afternoon.  State Police said two vehicles were traveling westbound on Route 354 in Colchester when one of the vehicles tried to pass the other, left the roadway and collided with a metal guardrail and multiple trees.  The driver, 18-year-old Jacob Chapman, and one of the passengers, 18-year-old Tyler Graham, were killed. Another passenger, 19-year-old Trey Massaro, was airlifted to the hospital.  West Conn President Dr. John Clark says the Counseling Center has met with players and coaches of the lacrosse team and counseling will be provided to students in Litchfield Hall, where the three team members lived on campus, as well as any student in need.  Clark says the University will also do all it can to support their families in this very difficult time.
