LOGAN -- Utah State University student Eric Scott Anderson, 24, of West Jordan, Utah, died Monday afternoon in a tragic accident on Old Main Hill at USU.

He was a music major who played trumpet and was a member of USU’s marching band.
“Our hearts go out to Eric’s family and friends,” said USU President Stan Albrecht. “This is an extremely tragic event, and we offer our sincere condolences to the family and to all the young people involved in this terrible accident.”
