Mrs. Don Geronimo dies in car accident

I've been a bit busy and didn't know this until today (when I read it on DCist) , but Freda Wright-Sorce died in a car wreck on Sunday. Freda is Don Geronimo's wife. Don being half of the long-running "The Don and Mike Show" on WJFK. Very, very sad. My best to Don and Freda's family.

From nbc4.com:

Freda Wright-Sorce, the wife of radio personality Don Geronimo and a frequent contributor to the popular nationally syndicated "Don and Mike" show, died in a traffic accident Sunday.

Wright-Sorce, 50, often called in to the comedy show on Washington radio station WJFK known for its outlandish humor and pranks, said Michael Hughes, the station's general manager.

State police said her vehicle was struck head-on Sunday afternoon by a vehicle that crossed the median on Route 90 in an attempt to avoid a pile-up. She died later Sunday at the University of Maryland Shock Trauma Center in Baltimore, hospital spokeswoman Cindy Rivers said.

The pile-up temporarily closed westbound Route 90, state police said.

Hughes said Geronimo was spending time with their son on Monday and the remaining members of the show planned to announce the death on the show.

Very Sad. I've listened to Don and Mike for years. Because they are local and we've heard her on the show all these years, it feels like we know them personally.
