Young Dane killed in the US during Thanksgiving
A 23-year-old Danish exchange student died in a tragic car accident while traveling to a Thanksgiving party in New Jersey last Friday, reported EkstraBladet.
Emil Tellerup Garner studied at Tulane University in New Orleans and together with a fellow student got invited to a turkey dinner in Colts Neck, New Jersey.
He traveled in a small Toyota Prius with an older married couple and a 21-year-old exchange student from Switzerland.
Hit by an oncoming car
The car was hit head-on near the town of Holmdel by an oncoming car, driven by a 69-year-old woman.
Garner died from his injuries 12 hours after the accident at a hospital in New Brunswick.
All the others are expected to survive.
The case is still being investigated, but according to the police, nothing suggests either driver was intoxicated.
