Mount Community Mourns the Passing of Kaitlyn Trinidad ’20

7/9/2018

To the College of Mount Saint Vincent community:

It is with deep sadness that I write to inform you of the heartbreaking and tragic loss of Mount student Kaitlyn Trinidad, her father Audie, and her sisters Danna, Melissa, and Allison, who were killed in a terrible car accident in Delaware on Friday. Kaitlyn’s mother, Mary Rose, alone survived the accident and remains hospitalized. The family was heading home to New Jersey after a Fourth of July holiday.

The death of a student affects the entire Mount Saint Vincent community. Kaitlyn will be remembered with great affection at the College—as a nursing major, as a member of SAMAHAN, and as an exceptional student in and outside the classroom.

We mourn these tragic deaths and we extend our deepest expressions of sympathy to the Trinidad family in this time of sorrow.

—President Charles L. Flynn, Jr., College of Mount Saint Vincent
