Fatal crash claims student

A student was involved in a fatal car crash Monday afternoon on Arlington Blvd.

A Ford F-250 truck struck senior Accounting major Elizabeth “Lizz” Griffiths’ Honda Accord around 1:30 p.m., according to police. She later succumbed to her injuries at Vidant Medical Center. Police believe rain and speed were involved in the crash.

Griffiths was heavily involved on campus with a business fraternity, the foreign language department and the accounting department.

“The last day of exams we talked about her future plans. She told me she loved the foreign language department and wanted to become more involved especially with volunteering. She wanted to keep up with her spanish and finish her business degree. She was always so ambitious, so funny and absolutely always smiling,” said classmate English and Hispanic Studies major Evelyn Inestroza.

Griffiths had become a part of Alpha Kappa Psi, a professional business fraternity, last fall.

“She had just been given an award at our banquet for ‘Most Impactful New Brother’ because she was just so dedicated and always had a great attitude. I’m so sorry to see her go, she was one of the most well-known brothers. She’ll be missed,” said Alpha Kappa Psi President Maurice Thompson.

Last summer she flew to Granada, Spain to study at the University of Granada as part of the Intercambios Lingüísticos y Culturales Program. Professor Rosa Lopez-Cañete accompanied her overseas.

“I was at a loss of words after hearing of her loss. She was always in a good mood and never missed class, happy to participate and a solid student. After the summer, Lizz became a regular at my weekly conversation hour, La Sobremesa, and I would see her most Mondays, ready to ‘keep up her Spanish’…She touched everybody, I cannot imagine Lizz having enemies. The entire department is very deeply saddened by her untimely passing,” said Lopez-Cañete.

Alpha Kappa Psi is working on organizing a candlelight vigil in her honor, though details are currently unavailable. Social media outlets have been swarmed with condolences for Griffiths’ family.
