Tragedy has struck the family of former NFL star Hugh Douglas, as his 20-year-old son was killed in a devastating Atlanta car accident this week.
According to reports, Hugh Douglas Jr. and his college roommate Christion Files Jr. were pronounced dead at the scene after their vehicle veered off the road, struck multiple poles and rolled over on Monday. Both were students at Morehouse College.
In the wake of the heartbreaking loss, the elder Douglas posted numerous tributes to his son on social media. “You made me so proud,” he wrote, sharing his grief. Morehouse also issued condolences to the boys’ grieving families and friends.
For the college and greater Atlanta community, the pain of losing two young, promising lives weighs heavy. While investigations continue, authorities believe speed was a factor in the deadly wreck based on the violent path of destruction left behind.
