PSU mourns death of studentĀ 

Pittsburg State University President Steve Scott issued a statement Monday upon learning of the death of student Griffin Lamb in a weekend car wreck, and the serious injury of two other students. 

"Our thoughts and prayers are with the Lamb family, and with Griffin’s friends and classmates," Scott said. "The loss of a loved one is always hard, but it’s especially tragic when it's someone so young and full of life. I extend my deepest sympathies and condolences on behalf of the entire Pittsburg State community." 

Griffin, a 19-year-old from Lenexa, Kansas, was killed when an SUV he was riding in near Burlington, Kansas, was struck by a pickup that crossed the center line early Sunday morning. He was a freshman majoring in automotive technology in the College of Technology. 

Students Brandon Darbyshire, a 19-year-old from Eureka, Kansas, and another passenger, 20-year-old Thomas Greig from Prairie Village, Kansas, were seriously injured and taken to hospitals in Topeka and Burlington. Brandon is a freshman majoring in exploratory studies, and Thomas is a freshman majoring in psychology in the College of Education. 

“We also send thoughts, prayers, and heartfelt wishes for a full recovery to Brandon and Thomas,” Scott said. “Gorilla Nation is pulling for them.”
