Missouri’s Harold Brantley Seriously Injured in Car Crash

Missouri defensive lineman Harold Brantley was unfortunately involved in a serious car wreck Sunday, which occurred just south of Columbia, Missouri. As a result of the accident, Brantley suffered a fractured leg, fractured ribs, as well as ligament damage, but is now in good condition at University Hospital in Missouri.

More from Ashley Zavala of ConnectMidMissouri.com:

According to the Missouri State Highway Patrol, Brantley was driving a 2000 Chrysler Concorde when he traveled off the left side of Hwy 63, over corrected, and slid off of the right side of the highway. The car then struck a guardrail and overturned.
A trooper on the scene of the accident told KRCG13 Brantley was stuck in the car for about ten minutes because crews had trouble opening the driver’s side door.
Brantley’s passenger, 21-year-old Madeleine Stock, had minor injuries after the crash. Both were taken by ambulance to University Hospital. Stock is a member of the Mizzou Women’s Basketball team.

Zavala posted some pictures of the scene on Twitter:

Rex Sharp, the associate athletic director for sports medicine at Missouri, said that Brantley is resting comfortably and his long-term prognosis looks promising. Missouri also issued a release saying that Brantley should make a full recovery. It should be noted that neither Brantley or Stock were wearing seatbelts.

Brantley was slated to be a starter this year for the Tigers after starting 10 games last season. He is coming off a season in which he recorded 54 tackles and five sacks.
