New Mexico DB Markel Byrd killed in car crash


There is some very sad news to pass along in the college football world today. Early Wednesday morning, the official Twitter account of the New Mexico Lobos football team announced the sad news that defensive back Markel Byrd had passed away.

Byrd, only 20 years old, was killed in a car crash.

Byrd was killed when he and his girlfriend, who were traveling home for the holiday, suffered a tire blowout. The two were then ejected from the vehicle and Byrd was killed instantly.

His girlfriend has been transported to the hospital where she is being treated for the injuries, though the severity is unknown.

Our thoughts and prayers are with Byrd’s family and friends and the New Mexico football team as they deal with this unexpected tragedy.
