WABASH COUNTY, INDIANA (WTIC Radio) - A South Windsor High School teacher has been killed in an out-of-state motorcycle crash.

Alan Beck taught Latin at South Windsor High.

Police in Wabash County, Indiana say the 49-year-old Woodstock resident was thrown from his motorcycle Thursday morning, when a pickup truck failed to yield to traffic, pulled into his path and the two vehicles collided.

In a statement, South Windsor Superintendent Kate Carter calls the news heartbreaking for students, family and staff.

She shared the final words of a recent email from Beck:

"I find myself feeling optimism for the future when I think of the fine, decent, young people with whom we work."

"Mr. Beck’s optimism reflects his commitment to students and his unwavering faith in the next generation," Carter added.
