Los Angeles, CA (Aug. 5) - Loyola Marymount University womenís soccer player Jessica Hanson and menís cross country runner Adam Bacon were killed in a car accident on Friday morning. The LMU student-athletes were on their way to Lake Havasu on vacation with the Hanson family when the incident occurred.

The accident took place on Interstate 40 near the Essex Road exit outside of Needles at 10:48 a.m. Two others were killed in the accident. Three additional passengers were taken to University Medical Center of Southern Nevada in Las Vegas.

Hanson (Pasadena, Calif.) and Bacon (Middletown, RI) were entering their senior seasons at LMU. Hanson graduated from Flintridge Sacred Heart Academy in La Canada, Calif., and Bacon from Coronado High School in Coronado, outside of San Diego, Calif.

ďThis is obviously a tragic time for Jessica and Adamís families, as well as the Loyola Marymount community,Ē said LMU Director of Athletics Bill Husak. ďOur prayers go out to the families of Jessica and Adam. Both typified the best of LMU student-athletes and this world was greatly impacted by them.Ē

Hanson and Bacon, both of whom excelled on their respective teams, were to begin their final seasons this week. Womenís soccer was to report for the first day of practice on Wednesday, Aug. 10. Baconís season was to begin with the teamís annual training in Mammoth on Sunday, Aug. 21.

The Bacon family has announced that the memorial service for Adam will be held Thursday, August 11, in Newport, R.I. The services will take place at St. Georgeís Episcopal Church, 14 Rhode Island Avenue in Newport, with lodging arrangements at the Howard Johnsonís in Middletown. In lieu of flowers, the Bacon family has requested that donations be made in Adamís memory to the LMU menís cross country program.

Arrangements for Jessicaís service are yet to be determined, as her mother and sister remain in stable condition at the University Medical Center.

Information regarding memorial services for Hanson and Bacon at LMU will be updated as it becomes available on and
