In Carbondale, an SIU student is dead and a few others are injured after a multi-vehicle accident.
 
The crash occurred around two in the afternoon Sunday near the intersection of Chatauqua Street and McLafferty Road.
 
Kenton James Barrick was on a motorcycle and police say he was attempting to turn east on Chatauqua Street when he pulled into the path of a car, also heading east, and was hit from behind. SIU Chancellor Rita Cheng confirmed that he died in a campus-wide email.
 
Courtney Hamilton, another SIU student, was taken to a St. Louis hospital for treatment. Two students and two teachers have already been treated and released for their injuries.
