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.
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.
