Authorities say the brother of an NFL player has died in a crash on an interstate in Georgia.
Bibb County Coroner Leon Jones tells WMAZ-TV that the wreck in Macon on Monday killed 27-year-old Jecaives Hayward, brother of Los Angeles Chargers cornerback Casey Hayward. He was pronounced dead at the scene after being ejected from a vehicle and struck by cars.
Two other men had been in the car with Hayward. The driver, 29-year-old Raymond Cox, and Oker Smith were hospitalized in stable condition.
The county sheriff’s office said in a statement that Hayward was a passenger in a 2011 Toyota Camry that struck a tractor-trailer in the emergency lane on Interstate 75.
