Alley, of Flemington, N.J., was in an accident with a fellow student on the morning of Friday, March 16, according to an email sent out to the College community by College Relations. The notice was signed by Interim Provost Susan Bakewell-Sachs.

Michael Krassan, a senior studying political science and Russian, is currently in critical condition, the email said.

Information regarding services for Alley will be shared once it becomes available, according to the message.

The Krassan family requested that the College informs those who are close to him that he is presently at Cooper University Hospital in Camden, but visitors are limited to Krassan’s immediate family, the email noted. Cards can be sent to Michael Krassan, c/o Patient Services, Cooper University Hospital, One Cooper Plaza, Camden, N.J. 08103.

Krassan and Alley were driving on Lower Ferry Road toward a bend in the road near Palermo’s III restaurant when their car went off the road and hit a tree at Lower Ferry and Hillside Avenue, Ewing police told the Times of Trenton.
