Theballerlife.com has learned that the aunt and uncle of San Francisco 49ers tight end Delanie Walker were killed in a car accident early Monday morning after leaving the Super Bowl XLVII game and festivities in New Orleans.
Walker’s agent, Vincent Taylor said Alice, 42, and Bryan Young, 54, were staying in a hotel in Baton Rouge and were driving there after spending time with Walker and family members after the game. Taylor said the Youngs pulled over on the side of the highway for an unknown reason when their car was hit from behind.
26 year old Nechole Thomas, seen below, of Houston was the driver that crashed into the Young’s car. The police report states she was traveling at a high rate of speed on I-10 west in St. Charles Parish on the right shoulder when the accident occurred. Both cars caught fire and, after the flames were extinguished, the Youngs were discovered in their vehicle and pronounced dead.
Thomas was arrested and charged with two counts of vehicular homicide, DWI and reckless operation. Authorities say preliminary toxicology results indicate Thomas tested over the legal blood-alcohol limit of .08%. Drug testing is still pending.
This is so sad! Our prayer and condolences go out to all families involved in this heart-breaking tragedy.
