LPGA Tour player Danielle Downing dies in a car accident

The tragic news has been confirmed with a heavy heart. Danielle Downey, the 33 year old former LPGA Tour player lost her life in a car accident on Thursday night. This fatal single car accident took place in Auburn, Ala when Downing was driving her 2011 Hyundai Sonata which she lost of control of. As the car travelled towards the north on Lee Road 57, it overturned a couple of times and Downing was forced out of the car. She lost her life’s battle at the East Alabama Medical Center where she was declared dead at 10:58 p.m and the declared reason for death was massive head injury and multiple blunt force impact injuries.

Looking back at her most important life events and achievements, Downey played for four years on the LPGA Tour (2006-2010) and in seven of the tournaments she was among the top ten. She returned to the Auburn University for her Alma matter and after coach Kim Evans was diagnosed with ovarian cancer, Downey was given the responsibility of coaching the Tigers where they finished sixth-place in the NCAA Championship. This was the best finish Tigers has seen in eight years. When Evans took over once again, Downey was given the position of the director of operations for the program. After hearing the tragic news, Evans offered her condolences.

According to her, Downign had dedicated a major chunk of her athletic life to Auburn and the program and will surely be missed by all.
