Jerry Brown, a practice squad linebacker for the Dallas Cowboys, was killed on Saturday when the Mercedes driven by his teammate Josh Brent struck the curb and flipped over. Brent, who failed a sobriety test, was found to have been traveling at a high rate of speed when he hit the curb, flipping his vehicle onto its roof in the middle of the road. The car then caught fire, and emergency responders found Brent trying to remove Brown from the car.
Firefighters were able to extinguish the fire, and transported the unconscious Brown to the local hospital. Once at the hospital, he was pronounced dead. Brent sustained only minor injuries, but was taken to the hospital for a blood-alcohol test that confirmed he was indeed intoxicated. Brent was then booked for second-degree intoxicated manslaughter at the Irving City Jail.
