TCNJ student Michael Sot dies of injuries from car accident

A New Jersey college student who was the designated driver for his friends was hit by an impaired driver — and died from his injuries, police said Tuesday.

Michael Sot, who was a 20-year-old sophomore at the College of New Jersey, was critically injured early Sunday morning when David Lamar V, 22, crossed a center line and slammed into Sot’s car in a head-on collision that injured seven others, three critically, authorities said.

Sot died two and a half days later.

Lamar V was originally charged with seven counts of aggravated assault after police discovered he was “impaired” during the crash but he will soon be charged with vehicular homicide, the Mercer County Prosecutor’s Office told The Post.

A GoFundMe page set up for Sot’s injuries before he died said he’d been the “responsible designated driver” and was “making sure his friends got home safe” at the time of the crash.

“He has head trauma that required surgery, a punctured lung, fractures of L4/5 vertebrae & many broken bones,” the GoFundMe page stated.

“He is a great son to his parents, an awesome brother to his 3 siblings & a great friend to many.”

Shortly after Sot died, his brother Jon Sot wrote on Twitter, “Rest easy Mike. I will make you proud. I love you more than you’ll ever know. See you soon” — and he included a heart emoji.

The president of TCNJ said in a statement the “news is heartbreaking.”

“Michael was an outstanding student, and a trusted and caring friend with a bright future ahead of him,” President Kathryn A. Foster’s statement read.

“The TCNJ community is keeping his family, friends, and loved ones in its thoughts during this tremendously difficult time.”
