Father Killed Minutes After Watching Daughter’s Soccer Game

BETHLEHEM, Pa. (AP) — Police say a New Jersey man was killed by a car minutes after he watched his daughter’s college soccer game in eastern Pennsylvania.

Bethlehem police say they’re still investigating the accident in which 64-year-old Charles Nasta of Morris Plains died Wednesday night.

He had just watched his sophomore daughter, Gabby, play for Moravian College. Moravian beat King’s College 3-1.

As Nasta was crossing a street near the soccer field he was hit by a car. The driver stayed at the scene and has been cooperating with police.

The school issued a statement saying, “Our hearts and prayers go out to the family, and we will do everything we can to help Gabby.”

The school has just 1,750 students.
