:: Jan Miller and Xuming Wang in Serious Car Accident


Prof. Jan Miller and Dr. Xuming Wang, of the University of Utah, have been in a serious auto accident in Tibet. They are currently in the military hospital there. Xuming is recovering well from his injuries, which were not as serious as Prof. Miller's.

Prof. Miller has been diagnosed with multiple fractures to his vertebrae in the cervical, thoracic, and lumbar regions, and clavicle and rib fractures. The plan is to stabilise him while plans are being made between the Tibetan government and related parties to transport him back to the U.S.A. It looks like he will need surgery once he returns to Salt Lake City.

On behalf of MEI, I wish both Jan and Xuming speedy recoveries. Xuming is a regular reviewer for Minerals Engineering, while Jan has been a long-serving member of the Editorial Board.
