Track recruit dies in accident

In the past few months, Missouri fans received a lot of what could be considered sad news. On Wednesday came the saddest news of it all.

Christian Finley, a Missouri track recruit, died when his Chevrolet Cavalier crossed the median on Interstate 70 and crashed with a tractor-trailer.

Finley, who was from Tulsa, Okla., was only 30 miles west of Columbia on his way to MU. The two other passengers in the car also died.

The tractor-trailer driver was not injured in the accident.

Finley, a sprint runner, was not on athletic scholarship because he received enough in academic scholarships.
