Vikings Rookie Khyree Jackson Dies in Maryland Car Accident

Jackson then transferred to Alabama, where he played two seasons (2021-22), where he teamed with fellow draft classmates Dallas Turner and Will Reichard.

Last fall, Jackson shined at Oregon, garnering All-Pac-12 honors from The Associated Press and the conference's coaches, as well as an invitation to the Reese's Senior Bowl.

Vikings Owners Mark and Zygi Wilf said they are "deeply saddened" by the news.

"Khyree had an extremely bright future ahead of him as a player, and it was clear he was dedicated to being a tremendous person who made a positive difference in people's lives. We are thinking about Khyree's family and friends and all members of the Minnesota Vikings following this devastating loss."

Maryland State Police announced Saturday they are investigating the crash in which Jackson, Anthony Lytton, Jr., and Isaiah Hazel perished.

Hazel, Jackson and Lytton were teammates at Dr. Henry A. Wise, Jr., High School in Upper Marlboro, Maryland.

According to a press release issued by Maryland State Police, all three victims were occupants of a maroon Dodge Charger. Hazel was driving, Jackson was in the front passenger seat and Lytton was in the rear seat of the vehicle.

The release indicated troopers responded to a crash after 3 a.m. Saturday and found three vehicles were involved. According to a preliminary investigation, the Charger was struck by a silver Infinity Q50 and traveled off the road. The Infinity Q50 then struck a silver Chevrolet Impala.

Occupants of the Infinity Q50 and Chevrolet Impala reported no injuries, according to the press release.

The Maryland State Police Crash Team is leading the investigation.
