(CBSDFW.COM) – The Dallas County Medical Examiner’s Office has completed and released the autopsy results on Dallas Cowboys practice squad member Jerry Brown Jr., who was killed in a December 8 crash along Highway 114 in Irving.
Brown, 25, was a passenger in the car that teammate Josh Brent was driving. Brent has been charged with Intoxication Manslaughter.
Police say Brent was speeding when his car hit a curb, flipped and came to rest upside-down.
The medical examiner’s report details Jerry Brown’s condition, noting abrasions on the right and left forehead and a cut on his left eyebrow. Toxicology results show that Brown was not legally intoxicated and had a blood alcohol level of 0.056 — well below the legal limit of 0.08. While Brown had no skull fractures, the report found his neck had been dislocated and spinal cord severely bruised.
The report ultimately concluded that Jerry Brown’s death was a result of “blunt force injuries of the head and neck.”
