San Francisco 49ers tight end Delanie Walker says it was his aunt and uncle who were killed in a fiery crash just hours after the Super Bowl.
Louisiana State Police identified the victims of the Monday morning crash on I-10 near La Place as 42-year-old Alice Young and 54-year-old Bryan Young, Sr., of Victorville, California. Alice Young was the driver of the car.
Trooper Melissa Matey says their 2012 Nissan Altima was stopped on the shoulder of the elevated interstate over the Bonnet Carre Spillway when it was struck by a Mercedes driven by 26-year-old Nechole T. Thomas of Houston.
Thomas was jailed on vehicular homicide, drunken driving and other charges. Online jail records do not indicate whether she has an attorney.
