BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (WBRC) - A tragic story involving an Alabama native and former Alabama Crimson Tide football player.

Rowdy Harrell died in an automobile crash during his honeymoon in Florida. His wife Blakley was also killed. The accident happened Tuesday.

Harrell was a walk-on linebacker with the Crimson Tide.

Harrell was a tire carrier for Hendrick Motorsports on Alex Bowman’s pit crew team.

I didnt have the opportunity to get to know Blakley and Rowdy as deeply as I normally do with other couples due to them...
