Wyoming Football Player Dies In Car Accident

Some very terrible news today coming from the Wyoming football program as one of their players died in a car accident early this morning:

CHEYENNE - University of Wyoming freshman linebacker Ruben Narcisse, 19, died early Monday morning in an automobile accident on U.S. Highway 287 south of Laramie.

Three other UW football players were in the vehicle: freshman receiver C.J. Morgan, 18, freshman cornerback Trey Fox, 19, and redshirt freshman linebacker J.J. Quinlan, 19.

The Colorado State Patrol said the accident happened shortly before 5:30 a.m. at mile maker 382, about six miles south of the Wyoming border. The vehicle was a 2005 Toyota Tundra. Colorado State Patrol spokesman Sgt. John Hahn said that alcohol or drugs were not a factor in the crash.

The driver of the vehicle apparently fell asleep at the wheel.

Narcisse and Morgan were taken to Medical Center of the Rockies in Loveland, Colo. Morgan remains there in fair condition.

Football means nothing compared to this tragic event.

UPDATE: Our Wyoming site Cowboys Altitude has some more information on the site of the accident which apparently is a stretch of road that has had over thirty fatalities since 1998.
