A potentially awful story has headed down a brighter path as the four Utah State Aggies football players who were injured in a car accident earlier this weekend. The four young men were senior defensive linemen Travis Seefeldt and John Taylor, redshirt junior defensive lineman Edmund Faimalo and fellow defensive lineman Adewale Adeoye. Former Aggies softball player Sarah Vasquez was also injured in the crash.
The accident occurred when the driver of the SUV the students were in inched forward at what was believed to be a two-way stop, but was actually a four-way one. A semi truck then collided with the SUV.
Speaking to the Logan Herald Journal, head football coach Matt Wells spoke briefly about the injured players.
“I’ve seen all four of our guys today and gotten reports back from Sarah that (she’s improving), but all of those guys are stable and trying to rest and recover,” Wells said in an interview with The Herald Journal late Saturday afternoon. “Bottom line is they’re in a lot of pain and discomfort, but they’re very fortunate and we all are fortunate that they’re alive and they’re going to be OK eventually.”
