1 Wyoming football player killed, 3 hurt in wreck
Question of the Day
FORT COLLINS, COLO. (AP) - A University of Wyoming football player was killed and three teammates were injured when a pickup drifted off a Colorado highway and crashed on Monday, authorities said.
Ruben Narcisse, 19, of Miami was killed, the Colorado State Patrol said.
Trey Fox, 19, of Glenwood Springs, Colo., Christian Morgan, 18, of Aurora, Colo., and J.J. Quinlan, 19, of Everett, Wash., were injured and were taken to hospitals in Laramie, Wyo., and Loveland, Colo.
The nature and extent of Quinlan’s injuries weren’t known.
Fox was driving and apparently fell asleep, investigators said. They said alcohol and drugs aren’t believed to be factors.
The pickup was northbound on U.S. 287 six miles south of the Wyoming border at about 5:30 a.m. when it went off the left side of the highway, struck a rock embankment and a tree and then rolled.
“The loss of any student saddens us immeasurably,” Buchanan said in a statement. “The entire university community grieves his loss.”
Coach Dave Christensen called it a “terrible tragedy, and a terrible loss.” He offered his support to the players’ families.
Counselors will be made available to players, coaches and other students, university spokesman Tim Harkins said.
Narcisse, a freshman, was linebacker.
None of the four played in Wyoming’s 28-20 victory over Southern Utah on Saturday.
Wyoming plays at No. 5 Texas next weekend. Texas coach Mack Brown issued a statement offering his school’s sympathy to the Wyoming players’ families and the university.
