A St. Augustine’s University football player died early Monday morning after a car wreck near his hometown in Georgia, the university said in a statement posted on its website.
Georgia State Patrol Sgt. Robert Balkcom said Matthew Mangram, 20, was driving south on U.S. Highway 17 – north of Darien – around 7:30 a.m. when he pulled out to pass another vehicle and his Nissan Sentra collided head-on with an SUV.
Mangram, a junior offensive lineman for the Falcons, died at the scene, Balkcom said.
A mother and daughter who were in the SUV were taken to a hospital in Savannah – about 50 miles north of Darien, to be treated for serious injuries.
Balkcom said Mangram had been home visiting his sick grandmother and was less than a mile from his home at the time of the wreck.
