We are heartbroken to report that CCRD has lost one of it's dedicated members. Slam Van Diesel #1988 - Sam Monroe was killed in a horrific accident last night. Her car broke down on the way to derby practice. While standing on the side of the road next to her car, she was struck by a drunk driver of another vehicle. Her three children that she left in the car were also struck by this drunk driver. All three of her children survived, but witnessed the tragic loss of their mother.
Slam will be remembered for her hard work and dedication to our league. Not only was she at almost every practice, but she filled league roles like attendance tracker, helping out to set up events, inter league committee, and our newly elected Smitten Kittens, B-Team CoCaptain. She was always at league events ready to promote CCRD and have fun with her derby sisters. Slam embodied Crush, and everything the league stands for.
Not only was she dedicated to derby, but to her family as well. Slam leaves behind three children. Our hearts go out to Slam's family.
We miss you already and love you Slam - keep on skating. ❤❤
