CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa (AP) - A former Mount Mercy University basketball player has died after a Johnson County car crash.

The accident occurred a little after 3 a.m. Sunday on Interstate 380 near the Iowa Highway 965 overpass. The Iowa State Patrol says a northbound car driven by 26-year-old Rashad Carrington went out of control and struck a guardrail, then landed in a roadside ditch. He was pronounced dead later at an Iowa City hospital.

Carrington graduated from Mount Mercy in 2013 and most recently was playing for the Cedar Valley CourtKings, a minor league basketball team based in Waterloo.
