Grace Rett, 20, killed and several injured in van crash in Vero Beach, Florida
‘Light to all who knew her’: Holy Cross remembers student killed in tragic crash involving women’s rowing team
Rett leaves behind her parents and a young sister who she was best friends with, according to Desimone.
Rudy Antoncic is a member of the Holy Cross men’s rowing team and Rett was his resident assistant in a dorm. He started a GoFundMe page to help pay for the medical needs of the surviving team members.
The former Holy Cross rowing coach who was driving a team van when it was involved in a deadly crash in Florida has been cited. Police say Patrick Diggins drove directly into the path of an oncoming truck at an intersection in Vero Beach.
Now, dozens of family members, friends, and teammates are participating in the “Grace to the Finish” marathon, where they will match her record by rowing for an hour apiece.
