Eyewitness Recalls Scene of Crash that Killed Cowboys Linebacker
DALLAS - A witness to the deadly crash that killed a Dallas Cowboys player and left a teammate facing criminal charges says he saw the car skidding down the highway on its roof after hitting a curb.
The Dallas Morning News reports that Bill Gray called 911 after watching the December 8th accident unfold near the old Texas Stadium site in Irving. Gray told the newspaper he saw Cowboys defensive lineman Josh Brent wobble and yell for help as he emerged from the flipped Mercedes.
Gray says he saw Brent grab the ankles of teammate Jerry Brown Junior and pull him through the window. The bystander said the 24-year-old Brent then slapped Brown's face and shook his friend in an attempt to revive him.
Brown died and was buried Saturday after a funeral in St. Louis, Missouri. Brent is charged with intoxicated manslaughter and free on bond.
