A student at Ole Miss, Alec Rawlings said the campus is still healing from last year's accident that killed three freshmen.
"I heard through twitter and it was really sad and it was during the football team and it toll on me," said Rawlings.
"They were good friends of mine and this really hits home that this happened again," he said.
Dean of Students Dr. Thomas Reardon expressed his condolences.
"So many people are touched by this, family friends classmates, instructors, neighbors, and we just want the Wheat family to know that they are in our thoughts and prayers," said Reardon.
According to their Facebook pages, Sarah and John were from Crofton, Maryland.

"It's sad for all of us but we can heal," said Rawlings.
