A 21-year old Stillwater man was among the three Carleton College students who were killed Friday in Northfield when the vehicle they were driving in spun out on an icy highway and was broadsided by an oncoming semi truck.

Paxton M. Harvieux, 21, of Stillwater, James P. Adams, 20, of St. Paul and Michael D. Goodgame, 20, of Westport, Conn. were killed in the crash, according to the Minnesota State Patrol. The driver of the 1997 Toyota 4Runner, William Sparks, 20, of Evanston, Ill., and Conor J. Eckert, 19, of Seattle, Wash.were seriously injured.

The driver of the semi truck, Danny Terry, 56, of Pioneer, Tenn., was not injured.

The crash happened 2:57 p.m. Friday at the intersection of Highway 3 and County Road 47. Everyone involved in the crash was wearing a seat belt, according to the State Patrol. No alcohol was detected.

Harvieux was a computer science major, Carleton College officials said in a news release. Adams was a chemistry major and Goodgame was majoring in political science.

The students in the SUV were members of the Carleton College’s Ultimate Frisbee team that finished third in the country in Division 1 competition last year, according to the Star Tribune.

“We offer our most heartfelt thoughts and prayers to the families and friends of James, Michael and Paxton, and we hope and pray for the full recovery of Will and Conor,” Carleton President Steven G. Poskanzer said in a statement. “The collective Carleton soul aches for the loss of these three young men. Right now, we need to focus all our love and compassion on supporting the families and friends of all these young men, along with everyone in our community who cares for them.”

Harvieux, a 2011 Stillwater Area High School graduate, and former athlete, also played basketball and ran track at Carleton.
