Vigil set for Boston U. students killed in crash

Boston University is planning to hold a candlelight vigil for three students studying in New Zealand who were killed when their minivan crashed during a weekend trip.

At least five other students from the university were injured in the accident early Saturday, including one who was in critical condition.

Boston University spokesman Colin Riley released the ages and hometowns of those killed. He says 20-year-old Daniela Lekhno was from Manalapan, N.J., 21-year-old Austin Brashears is from Huntington Beach, Calif. and the parents of 21-year-old Roch Jauberty live in Paris.

Police say the students were traveling in a minivan near the North Island vacation town of Taupo when the vehicle drifted to the side of the road and then rolled when the driver tried to correct course.
