An SUV collided with a wrecked car Saturday on U.S. 264, sending the car crashing into its driver, an East Carolina University student, as he exited and was run over by another vehicle, troopers said.

The early-morning incident west of Greenville involved four separate crashes and claimed the life of 20-year-old sophomore Robert Steven Perez of Centreville, Va.


The university has reached out to Perez’ family and plans to provide counseling and support to friends and fellow students, according to Vice Chancellor of Student Affairs Virginia Hardy.

Prayers and thoughts to the ECU student's family

always sad to read about such. He was just trying to get out of the vehicle and probably make the 911 call. I am surprised that there are no charges for those who ran into him and vehicle. As a responsible driver, one would think you are observant and see something ahead and slow down and move to another lane or stop on roadside. HP needs to re-evaluate those who hit the vehicle and him.Sad and thoughts with family and his friends.
