Dartmouth community in shock over student's deathOctober 08,2012The death of Darmouth student Mikhail “Mike” Lomakin of Norwich has left friends and teachers in shock. They said he was a kind and caring student and had a passion for science that inspired others.
According to police reports, Lomakin was lying in the right-hand lane on Interstate 91 South near mile marker 73 when two cars struck him.
Shane Harlow, 47, of Quechee and Justin Ciccarrelli, 37, of Windsor were in separate vehicles at the time and unable to avoid Lomakin's body, police said.
Police are also saying it appears a third vehicle may have done so, and may have front-end or windshield damage.
According to faculty and students who knew Lomakin, they said he was a friendly person and showed no signs of depression.
Police are still investigating to determine how Lomakin ended up in the interstate highway's travel lane early Saturday. They're interested in talking with people who may have seen Lomakin on Friday.
