Update: Binghamton HS Alum Passes Away After Tragic Accident


Update - 12/5

Late Wednesday afternoon, Farrelly succumbed to his injuries.  You can help support his surviving family by donating below.  We've included the description as well.

Noah Farrelly is 18 years old. Noah, an avid runner and member of the Division I cross country and track teams at Stony Brook University, was crossing a street on campus when he was hit by a car driving along the road. He was rushed to a hospital, but after hours of fighting, fighting for his life, he was declared legally deceased by the doctors. When I heard the news, I was reminded of the saying "only the good ones die young." Because Noah truly is one of the good ones. He is the nicest, most genuine person you would ever meet; easygoing and friendly, but tough and driven at the same time. He will always shake your hand and congratulate you after a race, and you know he's out there giving it his all every time. His parents Jim and Bridgette are the same way, and they don't deserve to have to go through this alone. Even a small donation can make a difference, we just want to help them out and make this incredibly difficult time a little easier.

Original Story

On Tuesday morning, Stony Brook University freshman Noah Farrelly was struck by a minivan, and critically injured.  He had just graduated Binghamton HS this Spring.  At this time, the incident is being ruled as an accident.

Farrelly was a distance runner for his local High School, competing in both the 1600m and 3200m at last Spring's New York State Meet.  Support began flooding online after news of the accident first broke.  Many Section 4 competitors and friends reached out online.

The news comes as a shock to the Section 4 running community, as well as the whole New York State community at large.  This is the second accident of this kind to happen on Long Island this year.  In September, Northport Freshman Miles Lerner was also struck by a car in an intersection.  The September incident occurred roughly 15 miles away from Tuesday's.
