ATHENS, Georgia – The University of Georgia has announced it will investigate the circumstances surrounding a car accident that killed a football player and a staff member.

Police said LeCroy was speeding when the rented SUV carrying four people lost control of Barnett Shoals Road early on the morning of Jan. 10.
Willock was thrown from the car and died on impact. LeCroy died in the hospital. Two other passengers, another UGA football player and another recruiting officer were also injured in the crash.
It is unclear what the group was doing in the hours before the crash. Investigators have said they are still awaiting results from toxicology and other tests to see if other factors contributed to the crash.
On Tuesday, the university released a statement saying that out of respect for the families, they have refrained from making public comments about the circumstances of the crash.
However, we want the public to know that the Athletic Department is conducting a thorough investigation, in conjunction with the appropriate legal counsel, to fully understand the circumstances surrounding this tragic event. We want to emphasize that these individuals were not involved in the duties of the athletic department at the time of this incident.

In the statement, UGA athletics director J. Reid Parker further said that the university is cooperating with law enforcement.
Coach Smart and I are also actively reviewing relevant football policies, and at the conclusion of that review, we will take steps to make any improvements to our policies and procedures that may be necessary. Our thoughts and prayers continue to be with the families and friends of all affected by this tragic event.
