Three graduate students from Eastern Illinois University were killed in a car crash while returning from spring break. All three were friends from India.

Investigators say a 41-year-old off-duty police officer was driving the wrong way along a St. Louis-area road when her car collided with the students' vehicle.

The officer is hospitalized in serious condition.

Campus officials and friends of the students are discussing plans for a memorial.
