One of the two victims in this morning's deadly five-vehicle crash on I-10 has been identified as Geri Ann Glasco, the daughter of Louisiana head softball coach Gerry Glasco and his wife Vickie. 

Geri (24) was a volunteer coach for Louisiana Ragin' Cajuns Softball team. According to her bio on RaginCajuns.com, "...Geri was the youngest of the three Glasco children, Geri Ann began her coaching career in 2017 as a student assistant on Oregon’s staff. She also served on the staffs of Mt. Hood Community College and Sandy High School and was a lessons instructor at The Bat Company before departing Oregon for Louisiana."

The deadly accident occurred this morning (01/24/2019) at approximately 1:00 AM in the Eastbound lane of I-10 near the Louisiana Avenue exit at mile marker 107. Although the accident is still under investigation, the preliminary investigation revealed that the driver of an eastbound 18-wheeler encountered slow moving traffic in an active construction zone. For unknown reasons, the driver of the 18-wheeler, 67-year-old William Rawlings of Killeen, TX, was unable to slow down in a timely manner and struck the rear of the vehicle driven by the second victim of the accident 45-year-old Kenneth McNeil of Houston, TX. That initial crash began a chain reaction involving a total of five vehicles. McNeil’s vehicle was pushed into Glasco’s vehicle, then struck the rear of a second 18-wheeler, which in turn struck another 18-wheeler.
