MERIDIAN TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) — A Michigan State University student was killed when his moped collided with a pickup truck at an intersection near the school's campus.

Meridian Township Police say 20-year-old Sebastian Tyll of Fenton, Michigan, was driving a moped Friday morning when it collided with the truck, fatally injuring him.

Police tell the Lansing State Journal that Tyll was wearing a helmet.

Alcohol isn't believed to be a factor in the crash, which remains under investigation.

Michigan State University officials said Saturday in a statement that "the thoughts and prayers of the MSU community" are with Tyll's family and friends.

Members of the campus community personally affected by the tragedy can access resources through the school's Counseling and Psychiatric Services.
