On Tuesday, April 13 at approximately 9:05 p.m., a student, Shubo Lin was attempting to cross Nicolls Road from East to West Campus at South Drive and was struck by a vehicle. Lin was pronounced dead at the scene. The Suffolk County Police Department is still investigating the fatal accident.

Shubo or Daniel, as his friends called him, was enrolled in the Intensive English Program on campus and was looking forward to a bright future here in the States, said President Samuel L. Stanley. Lin was a transfer student from China Medical University and would have been an undergraduate at Stony Brook this coming fall.

“Daniel was a very intelligent and creative student and was very much liked by both his classmates and teachers,” said President Stanley. “On behalf of Stony Brook University, deepest condolences to Daniel’s family and friends.”

The University is offering advising to students, faculty and staff for those who need it during this difficult time. Students may contact the Office of the Dean of Students (SAC, Room 222), Counseling & Psychological Services (Students Health Center, 2nd Floor) or the Center for Prevention & Outreach (Stony Brook Union, Room 216).
