Early Sunday morning, around 1 a.m. an Eastern Michigan University basketball star and another student were involved in a head-on collision.

According to the Washtenaw County sheriff's office the accident happened in Ypsilanti Township.  Shannise Heady, a 21 year-old junior was a forward for the Eagles.  She was driving the vehicle when it veered over the center line and hit an oncoming vehicle.

Heady and her passenger, Jordan Hopkins a 23 year-old senior were both killed.  The driver of the vehicle that was hit was treated at an area hospital for non-life threatening injuries.

Eastern Michigan is offering counseling for students who would like it.  University President Susan Martin said this is a "tragic loss."

Heady had transferred from Seton Hall University to Eastern Michigan in 2013.
