"Sobs as lachrymose players say goodbye to pregnant coach, 30, killed along with her unborn son"

From The Daily Mail:

Devastated lachrymose players at a small Pennsylvania college bid goodbye on Sunday to their team coach who was killed, along with her unborn son, when the team coach crashed on the highway this weekend...

Players and coaches from Seton Hill were among 23 people aboard when the coach crashed into a tree Saturday morning on the Pennsylvania Turnpike outside Harrisburg. The team was headed to an afternoon game at Millersville University, about 50 miles from the crash site in central Pennsylvania.(1)

Police are investigating the cause.

1) That's a funny way of giving directions:

"Where's the match?"
"Oh, about fifty miles from the crash site."
"How will we recognise the crash site?"
"There's a tree, you won't miss it."

Mark, that's terrible! I would have run with "Ban assault coaches with extended-capacity seating."

What sort of sport is lachrymose?

RA, why?

JH, it's like a tearful version of hockey.
