Police in Vero Beach has concluded their traffic homicide investigation involving a crash that claimed the life of a college athlete.

Several members of the College of Holy Cross Women’s rowing team were injured when the van they were being transported in collided with a pickup truck.

The students were on their way to practice at a nearby training camp.

Team member, Grace Rett, was killed in the crash that took place on Indian River Boulevard near the Barber Bridge.

Florida Highway Patrol officials reported the driver of the van turned left on a green light and failed to yield to oncoming traffic.

The report also indicates the driver of the pickup truck told investigators he remembers seeing the driver looking down just before he pulled in front of him, indicating the driver may have been texting or using his phone just before the crash.

“He (the driver) did say he was looking down at the GPS,” FHP said. “They had been at that location once or twice prior setting up, getting ready to do training and just like anyone else they plugged the address into the GPS.”

“We were not able to determine if a crime had been committed based on our investigation,” FHP said.

Comments:

Attorney Jason Weisser of Schuler, Halvorson, Weisser, Zoeller and Overbeck responded about the crash.  “Driving the speed limit on Florida’s Highways isn’t just the law. It may save your life by keeping you from being in an accident.  Unfortunately, in our practice, we have seen numerous instances where drivers blatantly violate these regulations, which results in catastrophic consequences.”
