EDINBORO, PA — A college student froze to death after tipping over his wheelchair early yesterday on his way home from a New Year's Eve party, authorities said.

The body of Justin Bradley, 22, of suburban Pittsburgh was found near a student union building at about 2 p.m. yesterday by two members of Edinboro University's girls basketball team.

Bradley had left an off-campus party at 2 a.m. and had turned down an offer of a ride home, police said.
