Who is Betty Colby?
Betty Colby, 89, was struck by a vehicle about noon Monday in the parking lot of a fitness center, police said. The impact knocked Colby backward, and she hit her head on the pavement, investigators said.
Colby died Wednesday, according to the news release.
Investigators also said that neither speed nor deterioration was factored in the accident. Hatchell resigned as a women’s basketball coach last April after an external review found that she had made “racially insensitive” comments and applied “undue influence” regarding players’ ability to compete through medical problems. The review by a Charlotte law firm also revealed “a collapse of connectivity between players and Hatchell” after 28 interviews of current players and program staff.
