Students involved in crash not coming from SAE event


    The two TCU students arrested after a fatal car crash Saturday night were not coming from an SAE fraternity event, the vice chancellor for Student Affairs said this week. 

    Vice Chancellor Kathy Cavins-Tull said Monday there was no sanctioned Sigma Alpha Epsilon event held on Saturday.

    She wrote in an email the university is in a “process of information gathering.” 

    “It will be determined by our Dean’s office what needs to happen in relation to the Student Code of Conduct, but either or both students may be charged with violations of our code,” she stated. 

    Marketing and Communication Interim Director Holly Ellman wrote in an email that TCU cannot disclose any additional information due to the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act. 

    TCU students Jonathan “Luke” Reed, 22, and John Morgan, 23, were arrested Saturday after their involvement with a car crash that killed Elena Infante De Flores, 46, according to the Fort Worth police report. 

    Reed, 22, the driver of the 2008 Chevrolet Tahoe, which collided with Infante De Flores’ 2003 Saturn Vue, was arrested on suspicion of intoxication manslaughter, according to the police report.

    In the passenger seat of the Tahoe was fellow TCU student John Morgan, 23. According to the police report, Morgan was arrested on suspicion of public intoxication.

    The wreck was at the intersection of Benbrook Boulevard, Granbury Road, McCart Avenue and Cleburne Avenue at 9:40 p.m. Saturday.

    Morgan was released from the Fort Worth City Jail Saturday night. Reed was sent to Mansfield Jail and was released after he posted bond.

    Both Reed and Morgan are in their senior year at TCU. The two men are still enrolled in the university for the spring semester, Cavins-Tull said in an email.
