Morgan State University mourns student killed in head-on car crash

10431538_10153198853106811_8841179986809993422_n_zpsse5rlest.pngBALTIMORE, MD - Morgan State University (a Historically Black College & University) located in Baltimore, Maryland, is mourning the death of a student following a Thursday night crash in Prince Georges County.

According to ABC2 News, Maryland State Police say that around 10:30 pm Thursday night, officers arrived at the scene of a fatal head-on collision that claimed the life of 20-year-old Adedire "Dire" Ososanya.

State troopers at the scene confirmed that both vehicles were driving in opposite directions in the same area before the driver of a Cadillac DeVille lost control and collided with Ososanya's Nissa Altima.

Ososanya attended Morgan State University (HBCU), who was known to many as Dire, was a student leader and highly involved with different campus organizations. He was serving as Mister Junior in Morgan State's Student Government Association Royal Court at the time of his death and about four weeks before his death; he joined the Pi Chapter of Omega Psi Phi,

The university released a statement in wake of the shocking tragedy:

"On a day when so many of our students are celebrating their graduation and the start of a new chapter in their lives, we at Morgan State University find ourselves in a state of shock, saddened by the loss of this member of our family. Adedire was well liked by his fellow students, who elected him as Mr. Junior (class). He was a marketing major here at Morgan and a member of Omega Psi Phi Fraternity. He had, in fact, completed nearly all of his coursework toward graduation and for his life to be cut short when he was so close to achieving that which he had worked so hard for is heart-wrenching. The entire Morgan family sends its condolences to Adedire's family. His loss will be felt in every corner of this campus."

In 2014-2015 academic year, Dire was voted by his peers to serve as Mister Sophomore and wanted to run for other positions in the Student Government Association.

Former Miss Morgan State University, Jasmine Garret said he aspired to run as Mister Morgan State University in the Spring, a goal that he had set his focus on for some time.

"Dire was a very special individual. He was great. He is great, and he only had potential to be greater. ... I think everybody, not just my line brothers, but anybody can say that about him. Everybody is just filled with love and laughter right now. It's just a tough time because you just lost somebody that you just crossed into the fraternity, and it's just like he's just gone. It's only been a month," Andrew Egiefameh, a senior, said.

Many students and friends took to social media Friday to share their memories of the beloved Ososanya, using the hashtag #RIPDire.

The university is offering counseling services to students following the sudden tragedy and released this statement:

Friends of Ososanya have created a fundraiser on GoFundMe, entitled "Prayers for Adedire Ososanya", which raised $10,947 and has reached its goal of $10,600 as of Saturday.

HBCU Campaign Fund president and founder, Demetrius Johnson Jr., released a statement following the learning of the death of Ososanya;

"HBCU Campaign Fund organization mourns the lost of Adedire Ososanya and sends our deepest condolences and prayers to the campus of Morgan State University, family, Royal Court and friends of Ososanya, who was currently Mister Junior and the newest member of the Pi Chapter of Omega Psi Phi Fraternity, Inc. during this sadden time of lost. "To be absent from the body, is to be present with the Lord." I know it hurts to lost such a great soul so soon, in such a tragic accident. But we should never question God plans and decisions of our soul timeline while living on earth.. May God be with the Morgan State community and keep in mind that Ososanya is in good care, he's in God hands."
