Jalen Carter, star Georgia DL, reportedly present at site of fatal crash that killed Devin Willock and Chandler LeCroy
Jalen Carter, a Georgia star defensive lineman and the potential No. 1 overall pick in the 2023 NFL Draft, was reportedly present at the scene of a fatal crash in January that killed Georgia player Devin Willock and recruiting staffer Chandler LeCroy.
Per a report from the AJC, Carter originally told police he had been more than a mile away from the one-vehicle accident when it took place. Later, he reportedly admitted he was close enough to the vehicle to see its taillights.
Per the AJC’s report, police have obtained surveillance videos as they try to figure out if any racing was taking place before the accident:
“Police had reason to suspect almost from the moment of the crash that other cars had been at the scene, and they soon learned at least two of those vehicles were driven by Georgia football players,” according to the AJC’s Alan Judd and Dylan Jackson’s report. “Seeking evidence of possible racing, officers have obtained surveillance video from city-owned cameras along the route the players took out of downtown Athens. They also obtained footage from at least one business owner.”
Police have not discussed any potential findings from the videos they’ve obtained. Carter’s agent, Drew Rosenhaus, has yet to issue a statement on the matter.
The Chicago Bears have the No. 1 pick in the 2023 NFL Draft and have been linked to Carter by many analysts.
