Tragic news out of Louisiana, as the aunt and uncle of 49ers tight end Delanie Walker were killed in a car accident near New Orleans after leaving the Super Bowl.

Alice and Bryan Young of Pomona, Calif. were stopped on the shoulder of Interstate 10 in St. Charles Parish when a driver hit them as she veered off the highway. Nechole Thomas, 26, of Houston was arrested on suspicion of vehicular homicide, driving while intoxicated and reckless operation of a vehicle.

Walker is the cousin of Alice Young's son DeAndre Williams, a standout high school football player. Williams was invited to go to the game but said he declined to focus on schoolwork and track practice.

"We lost some good people," Walker wrote on Twitter with an accompanying photo. "They will be missed. I love y'all so much."
