Rhode Island College is offering counseling to students and flying flags at half-staff as it mourns an English professor who was struck and killed by a pickup truck in Central New York.
Forty-three-year-old Jennifer Cook of Providence was walking with her mother Friday afternoon in Syracuse when the truck veered across the road and struck them.
“Killed by a truck,” “the truck veered across the road and struck them” – No, the “truck” did not kill her, the truck was driven by a person.[box]See also:
