Former Georgia Softball Star Killed in Chain-Reaction Wreck in Louisiana
LAFAYETTE, LA. – A former Georgia softball star was killed January 24 in a chain-reaction collision on a Louisiana interstate, according to an online news report from ajc.com. The wreck occurred in a construction zone on Interstate 10 and started with a tractor-trailer failing to reduce its speed.*
At approximately 1 a.m. on January 24, a tractor-trailer traveling on I-10 in Lafayette, Louisiana, failed to slow down in a construction zone and crashed into the back of another vehicle. The impact started a chain reaction of rear-end collisions that ultimately involved five or six vehicles. Geri Ann Glasco, 24, was in one of the vehicles and was one of two people who died at the scene.
Glasco was a member of the softball staff at Louisiana University, where her father was the head softball coach. She was a four-time all-state softball player in high school and the 2012 Gatorade High School Player of the Year. After high school, she spent two years at the University of Georgia, where she was named SEC softball Co-Freshman of the Year. At the time she attended UGA, Glasco’s father was an assistant softball coach.
Upon hearing of her passing, the UGA softball team posted a message to social media, saying, “Georgia softball extends its condolences to the family of former Bulldog, Geri Ann Glasco, who passed away Thursday morning in a car accident. The Glasco family means a lot of our program. Our thoughts and prayers are with them during this difficult time.”
Louisiana University and National Pro Fastpitch also released messages of condolence regarding Glasco’s passing.
