Asha Weir Pepperdine: According to police, four Pepperdine University students were slain on Tuesday night while strolling along the Pacific Coast Highway in Malibu by an uncontrollably angry BMW driver.

Around 8:30 p.m. on Tuesday, on a notoriously dangerous stretch of the famous highway, a 22-year-old driver named by authorities as Fraser Michael Bohm lost control of his BMW, striking the four women, all of whom were seniors, fatally.

On Wednesday, October 18, 2023, school administrators named the pupils as Niamh Rolston, Peyton Stewart, Asha Weir, and Deslyn Williams.

“It is with profound sorrow that we bring this message to the Pepperdine community about the tragic passing of four beloved members of our student community,” the press release says. “As you know, we sought official confirmation and the opportunity to speak with the families before releasing the students’ names.” The Malibu Times said on Facebook, 12 hours ago.

What Happened To Asha Weir

The devastating collision happened on Tuesday evening. Fraser Bohm, a 22-year-old male driver, has been placed under arrest for grossly negligent vehicular manslaughter.

Investigators surmise that he was traveling at a fast pace when he lost control and struck a gathering of pedestrians in the vicinity, leaving four people dead. Students from Pepperdine University have been identified as the deceased.

According to Monica Zech
“In this time of immeasurable grief and heartache, we stand together as a community and turn to our faith and each other to find hope and healing in the midst of this tragedy,” the university said in a statement. “Each departed student brought a unique gift and spirit to the University, and we deeply grieve the unfulfilled hopes and aspirations of our precious community members.”

Thursday morning, October 19, was set aside for a prayer session on campus for the victims. It is heartbreaking to lose lovely souls like Niamh Rolston, Peyton Stewart, Asha Weir, and Deslyn Williams. Please pray for the victims’ family.
