The sports world is still reeling from the fact that Georgia offensive lineman Devin Willock and staff member Chandler LeCroy passed away in a single-vehicle car crash just hours after the team celebrated its national championship victory.
A new report is now offering new details about the incident.
LeCroy was driving the car and Willock was seated behind her. The Georgia offensive lineman was ejected from the car as he was not wearing a seat belt.
The report also indicates the other player, Warren McClendon, was in the front passenger seat and suffered a “laceration in the middle of his head.” The other staffer, Tori Bowles, was in the back passenger seat and suffered injuries. As of the most recent reporting, she is in critical condition.
Via TMZ Sports:
“In the documents, authorities say the crash happened at around 2:45 AM in Athens … after the driver of the 2021 Ford Expedition, UGA staffer Chandler LeCroy, “failed to negotiate a left curve” and barreled into two poles and trees — before eventually coming to a halt against an apartment building.
Excessive speed was listed as a contributing factor in the crash, the report states. The posted speed limit in the area was 40 MPH.
The report adds LeCroy was not tested for alcohol or drugs.”
Willock, who was just 20, died at the scene. LeCroy was transported to a hospital after the crash but died a short time later.
According to the docs, McClendon and Bowles were transported to medical facilities for treatment for what were described as “suspected minor or visible” injuries.
