Tallahassee, FL (November 2, 2020) - Two students at Florida State University were killed in a crash over the weekend. The accident took place around 7:30 p.m near Apalachee Parkway.
According to a report from the scene, Victor Pena and Sena Shearman were riding in a Kia Optima when they attempted to make a left turn. As they were turning, their vehicle was hit by a Ford F350 traveling the opposite direction.
