Lady Techster assisntant coach involved in accident

Lady Techsters coach Chris Long is probably breathing a little easier these days. He came close to losing an assistant coach and his director of basketball operations recently in an automobile accident in Monroe.

The newly promoted assistant head coach Joni Crenshaw and Ericka Haney were traveling back from a luncheon with a school supporter when another vehicle changed lanes and slammed into Crenshaw's vehicle. The car spun around, hit a guard rail and came to rest in its original lane without another vehicle hitting it on top of the I-20 bridge.

"We were very lucky," Crenshaw said.

Haney, a former Notre Dame student-athlete, was playing with the Shreveport Sting in the Women's Blue-Chip Basketbll League before the injury, but has since gone on injured reserve. Both women were in their Thomas Assembly Center office working on Tuesday, however.
