New Mexico Safety Markel Byrd Dies in Car Crash

Prayers go out to his family. New Mexico safety Markel Byrd was killed in a single-car crash on Tuesday, the school announced Wednesday morning. He was only 20 years old.

Yahoo Sports is reporting that Byrd was riding with his girlfriend on a freeway when a tire on the car blew, causing the vehicle to go out of control.

Byrd and his girlfriend were both thrown from the vehicle, with Byrd suffered fatal injuries and his girlfriend left in critical condition.

“This is an absolute tragedy. Markel Byrd was an outstanding person and student-athlete and we will miss him.” New Mexico coach Bob Davie said in a statement. “I was with the family late Tuesday night and obviously they are devastated. Our thoughts and prayers go to them. Markel will forever be a member of our family.”

Byrd had just played for the Lobos’ in a bowl loss to Arizona.
