Former NFL Star D.J. Hayden Among Six Killed in Houston Red Light Crash!
In the early hours of Saturday, a collision that occurred at a red light in downtown Houston claimed the lives of six people, one of whom was a former NFL cornerback named D.J. Hayden.
According to Houston Police Assistant Chief Megan Howard, a two-vehicle collision occurred at two in the morning when a Chrysler 300, which was apparently “going very fast, high velocity,” ran a red light and crashed with an SUV.
The Houston Chronicle said that six people, five males and one woman, including Hayden, passed away.
At the scene, the authorities confirmed the deaths of four people. According to Howard, those who were slain included the driver of the Chrysler and a man who gave the impression of being homeless.
According to Howard, two of the persons who were sent to the hospital did not survive; one female passenger was listed as being in serious condition with life-threatening injuries.

According to his page on ESPN.com, Hayden, who is currently 33 years old, was born in Houston and attended and excelled at the University of Houston. He was selected in the first round of the draft in 2013, and he played for the Oakland Raiders, the Detroit Lions, and the Jacksonville Jaguars throughout eight seasons.
After being involved in a collision with a fellow teammate while practicing in 2012, which necessitated emergency surgery, he miraculously overcame a near-fatal tear to a central vein in his heart and eventually recovered from the ordeal.
