Nigerian student dies in US as his car plunges into a river

A Nigerian man identified as Ebenezer Tosin Oloba from Lagos and

 one Oscar Felipe Fuentes have died after being involved in a fatal accident on their way to a student government conference in College Station, Texas on Saturday.

For reasons unknown, their vehicle went off the highway and plunged into the San Antonio River.

Fuentes, 19, of Kingsville and Oloba, 23, of Snellville Ga., who drove the vehicle, were pronounced dead at the scene of the crash on US 77 near Farm-to-Market Road close to Victoria-Refugio county line Sunday afternoon. They were both students at Texas A&M University-Kingsville TAMUK.

The TAMUK Student Government Association, of which Oloba and Fuentes were members, planned to hold a candlelight vigil in honor of the two students.

Such a tragic end. May their souls find eternal rest.
