A UConn football player remains hospitalized after being involved in a car crash Saturday morning near the University of New Hampshire campus.
Senior running back Martin Hyppolite was reportedly riding in the passenger side of a car that struck another along Route 4 in Durham, N.H. The driver of the other vehicle, 74-year-old Bruce Larson, was pronounced dead at the scene while Hyppolite and Ryan Marchant, both 22, were transported to Portsmouth Regional Hospital.
Hyppolite, who graduated from Wakefield (Mass.) High School with Marchant in 2008, remained in serious condition Monday afternoon. Though he could be released from the hospital sometime within the next few days, his football future may be in jeopardy, according to the Hartford Courant.
Details about the crash and the extent of Hyppolite and Marchant’s injuries have not been confirmed.
Seeing time at both tailback and fullback in 2012, Hyppolite rushed for 69 yards and a touchdown on 19 carries for the Huskies.
