Mrs. Don Geronimo dies in car accident
OCEAN CITY, Md. -- 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.
