2 Ole Miss Students Recovering from Wreck

OXFORD, Miss. (AP) – One University of Mississippi student injured in a wreck remains in good condition at a Memphis, Tenn., hospital.

Two Ole Miss students – 20-year-old Chistopher J. Grimaud of St. Louis and 18-year-old Kevin J. Eagan of St. Charles, Mo. – died in the wreck on Mississippi Highway 7 about 5 a.m. Saturday. The vehicle left the highway and rolled over at least once.

Arthur Lueking, who was driving, is in good condition at Regional Medical Center in Memphis.

Passenger James Connors has been discharged from Baptist Memorial Hospital-North Mississippi in Oxford. It’s unclear if he’s moved to another hospital.

Connors and Lueking are also from the St. Louis area.

Oxford police didn’t respond Sunday to request for further comment.

Funerals for Grimaud and Eagan are scheduled for Wednesday in Missouri.
