New details on Tarvaris Jackson’s fatal car crash emerge

New details regarding former NFL quarterback Tarvaris Jackson’s fatal car accident reveal that he lost control of his car while speeding, slammed into a signpost and crashed into a ditch, according to TMZ Sports.

A police report obtained by the gossip site says the 36-year-old was driving 70 mph in a 30 mph zone when he was fatally injured in a crash in Montgomery, Ala. on April 12 around 8:50 p.m. The road where Jackson was driving wasn’t well lit, according to the report, and he lost control going around a bend.

Emergency personnel arrived on the scene a few minutes after the crash and said Jackson, who was about to begin his second season as quarterbacks coach at Tennessee State, was “unable to give a reason why he crashed his vehicle.” The report says Jackson was not tested for alcohol or drugs at the scene before he was transported to a nearby hospital, where he was later pronounced dead.

Officials blamed the crash on the fact that Jackson, who was noted to be wearing his full seat belt at the time of the crash, was driving at a “high rated speed.”

Jackson played for the Vikings, Seahawks and Bills over the course of 10 seasons in the NFL before retiring in 2015.
