We have devastating, heart-wrenching news to share with the Carleton community.
This afternoon, five Carleton students were involved in an automobile accident just outside of Northfield. Three of the students—James Adams ’15 (St. Paul, Minn./chemistry major), Michael Goodgame ’15 (Westport, Conn./political science major), and Paxton Harvieux ’15 (Stillwater, Minn./computer science)—died as a result of the injuries sustained in the accident. Two other students—Conor Eckert ’17 (Seattle/undeclared) and Will Sparks ’15 (Evanston, Ill./economics)—are hospitalized in the Twin Cities and are in stable condition.
