Second-year cornerback for the Baltimore Ravens, Tray Walker, is “fighting for his life” according to his agent after a devastating motorcycle accident, during which he collided with a Ford Escape around 8 p.m. last night while heading southbound on Northwest 21st Avenue in Miami. The driver of the Escape reportedly assisted responding authorities, and the pro baller was transported to Jackson Memorial hospital in critical condition.
According to the latest update, which comes from Walker’s agent, Ron Butler, doctors are “doing everything they can to try to preserve his life” and that Walker’s “family is all here.”
The Ravens released a statement yesterday, calling the accident “serious,” and including a quote from Ravens head coach John Harbaugh: “Oh my God…this is devastating news. Our prayers and hopes are with Tray and his family tonight.”
Walker was selected by the Ravens in the fourth-round of the 2015 NFL Draft, and played in 8 regular season games this past season, mainly on special teams.
