UPDATE (adds service details) A 20-year-old Westport man was among three college students killed Friday after their SUV spun out of control on an icy road near Northfield, Minn. and crashed into an oncoming tractor-trailer, the Minnesota State Patrol said.
Michael D. Goodgame, 20, died along with two other students at Carleton College in Northfield, which is about 40 miles south of Minneapolis and St. Paul, the State Patrol said.
Michael, a 2011 Staples High School graduate and a junior majoring in political science, was the son of Marcia and Dan Goodgame. Marcia Logan, her professional name, is communications coordinator at the Westport Library and Dan Goodgame is an award-winning journalist and bestselling author.
The others killed were James Adams, 20, of St. Paul, Minn., and Paxton Harvieuc, 21, of Stillwater, Minn, the State Patrol said. The accident occurred at about 3 p.m.
