The SUV in the fatal crash that claimed the lives of Georgia offensive lineman Devin Willock and Chandler LeCroy, a 24-year-old who worked in the recruiting department, was “strictly prohibited” from personal use, according to the university.

The University of Georgia athletic association issued a statement saying that the vehicle should not have been used because no one in the car was on athletic department business.

The accident happened just hours after the Bulldogs held a parade to celebrate their second consecutive national championship.

“The car driven in the accident was one of several vehicles leased by our athletic department for use during recruiting activities only,” the athletic association said in a statement, via the Associated Press.

“Policies and expectations that were well understood by athletics staff dictated that such rental vehicles were to be turned in at the immediate conclusion of recruiting duties. Personal use was strictly prohibited. Therefore, the continued use of the leased car by our staff members after their recruiting duties ended earlier that evening was unauthorized.”

Offensive lineman Warren McClendon and Georgia staffer Victoria Bowles were also injured in the accident. McClendon suffered minor injuries, while Bowles was hospitalized with multiple serious injuries.

High speed was determined to be one of the factors in the fatal crash.
