Former New York Jets Star Dennis Byrd Killed In Car Crash
The collision happened Saturday in Byrd’s home state, outside Tulsa. According to cops, a Ford Explorer traveling in the opposite direction swerved into Byrd’s lane and crashed into his vehicle. He was declared dead on the scene from “massive injuries.” Two people in the Explorer suffered serious injuries.
Byrd infamously suffered an on-field injury in 1992 that left him paralyzed. However, less than a year later he taught himself to walk again … and became a huge inspiration to NFL players and fans.
Rest in peace to this amazing athlete and man!
