College of DuPage student killed during winter break

December 20, 2011 (GALENA, Ill.)

Nineteen-year-old Michael Coleman was a student at College of DuPage and a graduate of Bartlett High School.

Monday morning, Coleman was on a snowboarding trip with his best friend, who also graduated from Bartlett.

The two were traveling on Route 20 when the car in front of them lost control on the icy roadway. That car sideswiped another car in the opposite lane, which then struck Coleman's car head-on.
