Laura Erdelyi, a Senior Public Relations student, was killed in a car accident Sunday morning. 

According to Erdelyi’s LinkedIn, she was slated to graduate in December of 2016 and also worked as a fitness instructor at area YMCAs.

Spinnaker spoke with Lori Leake, a Massage Therapist at the Yates YMCA, who knew Erdelyi from work.

“She was always so friendly, always excited and full of energy,” she said. Leake went on to say how sad the news was.

According to police, Erdelyi was travelling on Roosevelt boulevard when a red Chevy Suburban hit her vehicle. Erdelyi’s Honda Civic was upside down and pinned against a cement light pole. She was pronounced dead at the scene.
