Machteld Klok, food technology student, was killed last weekend in a car accident during a traineeship in the United States. Miss Machteld was driving home in heavy rain after work at night. Her car went off the road due to unknown reasons and hit a tree.
'Machteld has blossomed during her student days and traineeship into a fantastic young woman who would be terribly missed by her many friends in Wageningen, Oneonta and Hattem, as well as her family,' reads a message from her family.
Argo has announced a period of mourning. A book of condolence has been opened at the society and in the Forum for those who wish to leave a message.
A memorial service will be held at the start of next week in the Aula of the university.
