Wetumpka teen killed during jog
MONTGOMERY (AP) — A sophomore at Wetumpka High School was struck by a car and killed while jogging along Grier Road.
State Trooper spokesman Donald Frazier said Megan Cook, 15, was running about 5:30 p.m. Saturday when she tried to cross the road and was struck by an automobile.
She was a pitcher and played second base for the Indians softball team. Her mother, Angela Cook, is the softball coach and senior administrator at Huntingdon College, where her grandfather, Don Ratliff, is an assistant softball coach.
Wetumpka softball coach Randy Stough said Cook was apparently trying to avoid a car turning into a driveway and didn't see the second vehicle "and the driver didn't see Megan until she was right on her."
