49'ers Delanie Walker’s Aunt & Uncle Killed By Drunk Driver After Leaving Super Bowl
I know exactly where this is too.

On the spillway bridge leaving New Orleans. There is really no shoulder there and a bad place to stop.

My prayers are with them.

"The aunt and uncle of 49ers tight end Delanie Walker were killed by a suspected drunk driver just hours after watching their nephew play in the Super Bowl.

WWL-TV reports that a two-vehicle accident happened around 5:30 a.m. on I-10 near mile marker 214, just outside New Orleans. Nechole Thomas, a 26-year-old Houston resident, was driving “at a high rate of speed” on I-10 westbound when she hit another car that had stopped on the shoulder, according to state police. Both vehicles caught on fire.

Thomas escaped with minor injuries. She faces two counts of vehicular homicide, DWI and reckless operation."

That's the kid that was from Univ of Central Missouri in Warrensburg. We were just talking about UCM today in the math thread. Very sad. First lose the game, then this.

Not sure if his aunt & uncle had been drinking.

They were driving a 2012 Nissan so it shouldn't have broken down.

Accident happened around 5am.

Not sure but there was a vehicle fire that shut down I-10 for hours.

They may have burned to death.

“Alice and Bryan Young my aunt and uncle was killed on Monday at 5 am after the super bowl by a drunk,” Walker wrote. “Im going to miss y’all but i know they are in a better place.”

That really sucks, esp on a night like that...but my prayers aren't with them. I'm not going to say something cliche' on the internet just for the hell of it.
