Driver Hurt In Deadly Florida Crash Settles With Holy Cross, Coach

WORCESTER, Mass. (WBZ NewsRadio) — A pickup truck driver involved in the crash that killed a Holy Cross rower in Florida last year has settled a lawsuit against the college and a coach with the school.

Ronald Wolf was seriously injured in the crash. In July 2020, he sued Holy Cross coach Patrick Diggins and the school. Diggins was driving a van carrying the women’s rowing team in Vero Beach, Fla.

The crash happened in January of 2020. Police said that Diggins caused the crash by failing to yield the right-of-way while making a left turn.

Holy Cross student Grace Rett, of Uxbridge, Mass., was pronounced dead at the scene.

According to court documents, the case was dismissed with prejudice on May 6. "The Court congratulates the Parties on their amicable resolution of this matter," U.S. District Judge Donald Middlebrooks wrote.

It is unclear what the amount and terms of the settlement were. Wolf was seeking $75,000 in damages, according to the Telegram & Gazette.
