TCU administrator dies 10 days after car hit building

FORT WORTH -- An administrator at Texas Christian University died Tuesday at a Fort Worth hospital, 10 days after he was in a traffic accident on May 17 on the city's west side, officials said.

Gregory Trevino, 34, was grieved by the TCU community, which he served as director of Inclusiveness & Intercultural Services.

"He struggled valiantly, but his injuries were too severe to overcome," said Don Mills, vice chancellor of student affairs, in memo to students, faculty and staff.

"As a student told me last week, 'We all love Greg so much,'" Mills said. "He will be missed."

The accident happened at 3:50 a.m. May 17 in the 3700 block of of West Vickery Boulevard, said Sgt. Rodney Bangs, supervisor of the Traffic Investigation Unit.

He was eastbound in a 2004 Toyota which crossed a grassy median and struck a building, Bangs said. No other information was available about the crash.

Trevino was taken to John Peter Smith Hospital where he died at 1:37 p.m. Tuesday.

Inclusiveness & Intercultural Services (IIS) promotes diversity, inclusiveness, and cultural awareness at TCU, according to the university's Website.

On the site, Trevino said he was inspired daily by the university's students. He once was among them, having earned bachelor's and master's degrees at TCU.

"They’re in college to reach the next level in their lives (whether it be academically, spiritually, personally, or whatever)," he wrote, "and that eagerness to learn inspires me to provide our students an exceptional experience at TCU so they can reach that next level."

Trevino, who came from Corpus Christi, enjoyed golf, jogging, travel, according to the IIS Web page. Funeral arrangements were pending on Wednesday, Mills said.
