Former San Diego Chargers Safety Terrance Kiel lost his life on Friday night when he lost control of his 2004 Chevrolet Monte Carlo. Now reports are still very not solid. Because reports say that he was ejected from the vehicle, but photos from the scene show firefighters prying the his car which after smashing into the wall fell into a hillside.

With that information and visuals from the crash I can only conclude that his car smashed into the wall ejecting him down into the hillside and then the car flipping over the 3-4 ft wall and with a stroke of bad luck, landing on top of him, leading to his death.

I know that sounds a bit morbid, but that's the conclusion I can come up with following the official reports and images.

The real sad part is that it could have been avoided. If he had only allowed someone else to drive him home. Message: Don't drive home drunk! Just cause you're a super human athlete doesn't mean your invincible. You can certainly absorb more punishment, but you're still just human.

It's sad news to hear of a former Charger lossing his life. It's a sad day for a Charger fan. Kiel was a good player that contributed to the teams success. But his legal problems cost him his job with the Chargers.
