Today was a rough day for Baltimore Ravens fans across the globe, as cornerback Tray Walker passed away after a bike accident.
Walker was heading west on Northwest 75th Street on a Honda dirt bike when he collided with a Ford Escape heading south on Northwest 21st Avenue, according to the Miami-Dade Police Department. The accident occurred at about 7:50 p.m. on Thursday, and police said Walker's bike did not have headlights and that he was wearing dark clothing.
The intersection where the accident took place is a two-way stop. Walker was not wearing a helmet, Butler said.
The Ravens announced the news after speaking with Walker's godmother. Walker's agent, Ron Butler, also confirmed his client's death to ESPN.
"Tray was a young man with a good and kind heart," Ravens coach John Harbaugh said in a statement. "He was humble and loved everything about being part of the Ravens' team. He loved his teammates, the practice and the preparation, and that showed every day. He was coachable, did his most to improve and worked to become the best. I'll never forget that smile. He always seemed to be next to me during the national anthem; then we would give each other a big hug. May he rest in the Peace of Christ Jesus forever."
Truly sad day for NFL fans across the globe.
