Paul Loring, a 26-year-old UMB senior and off-duty Boston firefighter was killed along with his lifelong friend in a car accident south of Boston October 21.

State police said that Loring and his passenger, 25-year-old Patrick Forde, were killed after the Lincoln LS Loring was driving swerved off Route 28 northbound in Quincy, rolled, and struck a tree around 2:40 A.M. Tuesday morning.

Authorities said the men were returning from an October 20 New England Patriots game in Foxborough and that both were wearing seatbelts.
