After a triple car accident, Khyree Jackson, a rookie with the Minnesota Vikings, passed away at the age of 24. “Great Player, Better Person” is a saying…

Khyree Jackson, who signed with the NFL in 2024, has passed away. The age of the man was 24.

A “triple fatal car crash” occurred in the early morning hours of Saturday, July 6, in the state of Maryland, according to a press statement issued by the Maryland State Police. The athlete, who was scheduled to make his debut in the National Football League this autumn as a rookie cornerback for the Minnesota Vikings, passed away early in the morning.

Jackson’s former classmates at Dr. Henry A. Wise Jr. High School, Isaiah Hazel, 23, and Anthony Lytton, Jr., 24, both passed away as a result of the accident that occurred in Prince George’s County, according to the Prince George’s County Police Department. While Jackson was sitting in the passenger seat, Hazel was the one behind the wheel of the Dodge Charger piloting the car. In the meanwhile, Lytton was located in the rear.

Cori Clingman was the driver of a silver Infiniti, which was one of the three cars that were engaged in the collision, according to the police. The other two vehicles involved in the collision were automobiles. “Investigators believe Clingman attempted to change lanes while driving at a high rate of speed when she struck the Dodge Charger and then struck the Chevrolet Impala,” according to law enforcement. “The Charger subsequently traveled off of the right side of the roadway and struck multiple tree stumps where the vehicle came to rest.”

All of the people in the vehicle, including Clingman, the two passengers in her Infiniti, and the driver of the Impala, are unharmed. There is a possibility that alcohol was a “contributing circumstance” in the accident, according to the investigators.

In a message on X (which was then known as Twitter), the men’s old high school sports department expressed their shock and sorrow at their passing. “The Dr. Henry A. Wise Athletic Department sends condolences to the families and mourns the loss of Khyree Jackson (State Champ 2016 c/o ’17) Anthony Lytton, Jr. (AJ) (State Champ 2015,16,17 c/o ’18) and Isaiah Hazel (State Champ 2015, 16, 17 c/o ’19),” according to the post, which concluded: “#OnceAPumaAlwaysAPuma.”

An official statement issued by the Vikings expressed their sorrow at Jackson’s passing as well. “We are thinking of Khyree’s family, friends, teammates, and coaches, as well as all of the victims of this tragic accident,” the statement stated. “We are deeply saddened by this tragic accident.”

There were also a number of staff members from the Vikings who expressed their sympathies. The owners, Mark and Zygi Wilf, said that “Khyree had an extremely bright future ahead of him as a player.” They went on to say that “it was clear he was dedicated to being a tremendous person who made a positive difference in people’s lives.”

According to Kwesi Adofo-Mensah, the general manager of the Vikings, he is “heartbroken by the loss of Khyree.”

After that, Adofo-Mensah stated, “As we got to know him throughout the pre-draft process, it became abundantly clear that Khyree wanted to accomplish both professionally and personally.” The tale of his life was one of perseverance. Not just for himself, but also for people who cared about him and looked up to him, he was making efforts to improve himself for the sake of being the best version of himself. The presence of Khyree’s personality was felt in every room he entered. I am utterly heartbroken by the fact that his life and all that he had in front of him have been stolen from him.

Kevin O’Connell, the head coach, also issued a statement, in which he said, “I am absolutely crushed by this news.” The excitement that Khyree brought to our facilities and with her to our staff was infectious. Everyone on the squad was instantly drawn to him because of his self-assurance and his charismatic attitude.

“In the short time that we spent together, it was clear that Khyree was going to develop into a tremendous professional football player. However, what was even more impressive was his desire to become the best person he could be for his family and those who were around him,” concluded O’Connell. When it comes to words, I am at a lost.

In a similar manner, Dan Lanning, who had previously served as Jackson’s head coach at the University of Oregon, issued a statement after the unexpected passing of Jackson. Khyree, rest in peace… A message of love was written by the coach on X. “You are at a lost for words. I am going to miss seeing your grin. Excellent player and a lovely guy.”

During the offseason, Jackson, who was taken by the Vikings in the fourth round of the 2024 selection in April, had one of the most inspiring tales to tell. It was stated by Sports Illustrated that the native of Maryland had previously given up football entirely because he did not have grades that were good enough to play collegiate football at the Division I level. Instead, he had been working at a grocery shop in the area.

Through a video that was distributed by the Vikings, he said, “There was a time when I wasn’t really thinking about football very much.” “At the grocery store, I had just been awarded the title of employee of the month.”

After deciding to give football another go in 2019, the cornerback went to Alabama, where he played for the Crimson Tide for two seasons before moving to Oregon, where he drew the notice of the Vikings.

Jackson sent a touching statement on Instagram after his big moment in the draft, noting that he was “sitting here 48 hours away from me and my family’s life changing.” Jackson’s letter was posted after his accomplishment in the draft.

“What am I supposed to say? According to what he wrote at the time, “I guess the saying ‘life is what you make it’ really means exactly what it reads.” “I got off my backside and took what I deserved,” the speaker said.
