An NFLer's career is now over after a horrible car wreck.
Former St. Louis Rams and Miami Dolphins' running back Isaiah Pead's NFL career is over after sustaining serious injuries in a car accident, Los Angeles Rams head coach Jeff Fisher said, according to ESPN.
Pead was reportedly driving his car eastbound on I-670 around 2:30 a.m. when he lost control and drove off the right side of the highway. The car went through a metal guardrail and went airborne. The vehicle also struck several trees as it cascaded down an embankment. Pead was not wearing his seatbelt and was ejected from the vehicle. Authorities say drugs and alcohol were not a factor.
A passenger, Wesley Richardson, was also transported to hospital but is in stable condition.
Pead spent four seasons with the St. Louis Rams after being a second-round pick in the 2012 NFL Draft. He suited up for three games with the Miami Dolphins earlier this season, and recently worked out for the Kansas City Chiefs.
"Our organization's hearts and prayers go out to the Isaiah Pead family," Fisher said. "I spoke with his mom (on Saturday). He's struggling, and he's going to have a tough road. We're hoping that he'll come through this, but his career is over, and he was an outstanding young man while we had him."
