Alum dies in accident

A recent Bradley graduate died Saturday afternoon in the crash of a single-engine airplane in north central Illinois, the Federal Aviation Administration told the Journal Star.
Lauren Hamilton, 22, was a passenger in an airplane flown by a family friend, Randall Hougham of Sandwich, when she was home celebrating Easter.
Hamilton graduated from Bradley in December with a degree in communications.
The plane went down in a cornfield just north of the Sandwich Airport, FAA spokeswoman Elizabeth Isham Cory told the Journal Star.
The DeKalb County coroner’s office pronounced Hougham and Hamilton dead at the scene at 2:30 p.m.
