Former NFL QB Jackson dies in crash

MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) — Authorities said former NFL quarterback Tarvaris Jackson died in a one-car crash outside Montgomery. He was 36.

The 2012 Chevrolet Camaro that Jackson was driving went off the road, struck a tree and overturned at 8:50 p.m. Sunday, Trooper Benjamin “Michael” Carswell, an Alabama Law Enforcement Agency spokesman, said in a news release. Jackson was pronounced dead at a hospital.

The wreck occurred about seven miles south of Montgomery, his hometown. The crash remained under investigation.

Jackson was hired as quarterbacks coach for Tennessee State last season after a 10-year NFL career with the Seattle Seahawks, Minnesota Vikings and Buffalo Bills.
