This morning, the Dallas Police Department notified the DBU administration of a two-car accident involving five DBU students that occurred on Mountain Creek Parkway, just east of the DFW National Cemetery, in the early hours of Sunday, October 4.

There were two fatalities, first-year student Kaitlyn Kotzman and first-year student Karina de la Rosa. The three other students involved in the accident sustained non-life-threatening injuries and are currently recovering.

“We are devastated by this horrible loss of life,” shared DBU President Dr. Adam C. Wright. “We are praying for the families of all those involved as they process through this tragedy.”

DBU will be holding a campus-wide prayer service on Monday evening, October 5, at 7:00 p.m. in Pilgrim Chapel and will also be providing counseling for classmates and friends of the students.
