ALABAMA- Auburn sports radio announcer Rod Bramblett and his wife were killed in a fatal car accident on Saturday.
The crash occurred on Shug Jordan Parkway at the intersection of West Samford Avenue.
According to ESPN, Bramblett and his wife Paula were in a 2017 Toyota Highlander when they were struck in the rear by a Jeep Grand Cherokee around 6 p.m. Saturday evening.
The couple had to be airlifted from the scene and they both died at separate hospitals.
