Boeheim strikes, kills man on interstate with vehicle

Boeheim strikes, kills man on interstate with vehicle

Additionally, officials say Boeheim called 911 and was fully cooperative with investigators. Jimenez and others got out of his vehicle and began walking along the highway.

Police told the station that Boeheim saw the vehicle in the middle of the road and tried to avoid it. Jimenez was transported to Upstate University Hospital where he was later pronounced dead, and the three others in that vehicle were transported to St. Joseph's Hospital.

Sobriety tests were administered to Boeheim and the unidentified driver of the Charger, police said.

On Thursday afternoon, Boeheim and Syracuse University each released a statement paying their respects to the victim and his family. He says he will not be commenting further out of respect for those involved in the accident. The occupants exited the vehicle. Driving conditions are said to have been icy at the time, though it's too early to tell if that was the sole reason for the unfortunate accident. It's absolutely terrifying. While we don't know all the details right now, I feel it's a good time to remind people getting out of your vehicle in high traffic areas is nearly always a bad idea.

Fitzpatrick said Boeheim, 74, was returning home from dinner with his wife and friends.

ESPN's College GameDay was scheduled to visit Syracuse this weekend as the Orange took on the Duke Blue Devils.

John Wildhack, director of athletics at Syracuse, said in a statement that the community was "saddened" by the death. Boeheim drove by later, striking the man, Syracuse.com reported.

He has coached at Syracuse since 1976 and has compiled a 1,045-379 record. He said Boeheim met with his team Thursday but didn't attend or participate in practice.
