LSU kicker injured in car accident that killed two Big Ten punters
LSU kicker Colby Delahoussaye was hospitalized from the the Wisconsin car crash that took the lives of two Big Ten punters.
Delahoussaye was in the backseat of the car, riding with Nebraska punter Sam Foltz and former Michigan State punter Mike Sadler after leaving the Kohl’s Kicking Camp in Wales, Wis.
Earlier on Sunday, former LSU kicker Trent Domingue announced he has transferred to Texas after not having his scholarship renewed, potentially opening up the starting job for Delahoussaye.
Our thoughts are with Foltz and Sadler families as we’ll continue to watch for updates on Delahoussaye.
LSU spokesman Michael Bonnette told Ross Dellenger of the Advocate that Delahoussaye needed stitches and was treated for leg burns. He has been released from Waukesha Memorial Hospital.
More details have also emerged about the crash:
Foltz was a passenger in a car travelling westbound on Beaver Lake Road at 11:30 p.m. The car lost control on wet pavement, left the roadway and struck a tree. Speed appears to be a factor in the traffic crash, the release said.
The driver of the car was Sadler. He and Foltz were pronounced dead at the scene.
Upon hearing the news, LSU head coach Les Miles released the following statement:
“Our thoughts and prayers go out to the families of Sam Foltz and Mike Sadler. We grieve for them. This isn’t supposed to happen to young people who have so much to live for. We are so thankful that Colby will be able to return home to his family and friends.”
