Whittier : Memorial Fund Established for Student Killed in Crash

January 25, 1990

A memorial fund has been established at Whittier College for a 22-year-old student who was killed when the car she was driving collided early Sunday with an airport shuttle bus in West Los Angeles.

Delphi L. Murphy, a junior majoring in art, was killed after the car apparently ran a stop light at 96th Street and Sepulveda Boulevard and was broadsided by the bus, college spokeswoman Sandy Sarr said. Two other students in the car, Carol Hooper and Linda Bennett, were treated at nearby hospitals and released.

Sarr said Murphy and her twin sister, Desma, were "very popular and visible on campus. You would always see them together. It is very unusual that they were apart the night of the accident."

Sarr said a funeral service will be held at 7:30 p.m. today at Westminster Presbyterian Church of Pasadena, 1757 N. Lake Ave., Pasadena.
