San Francisco 49ers tight end Delanie Walker's aunt and uncle were perished in a tragic road accident when an alleged drunk driver smashed into their car just hours after watching their nephew play in Super Bowl XLVII.
The accident, which included two vehicles, happened around 5:30 a.m. on the I-10, WWL-TV.com reported.
Just four hours before Walker tweeted: “Alice and bryan young my aunt and uncle was killed on Monday at 5 am after the super bowl by a drunk driver... We lost some good people they will be missed i love y'all so much..”
According to details about the accident; the 26-year-old Nechole Thomas was supposedly driving "at a high rate of speed" on I-10 westbound, near mile marker 214, when she smashed into 2012 Nissan Altima which had stopped on the shoulder, according to state police. Both cars immediately caught fire.
“Im going to miss y'all but i know they are in a better place..”, Walker tweeted further.
Thomas, who escaped with minor injuries, has been charged with two counts of vehicular homicide, DWI and reckless operation.
