North Carolina Central defensive back Tariq Jacobs was injured in a crash Tuesday evening in Durham, N.C., that killed Chekeria Reid.
Reid, also a NCCCU student, was a manager for both the football and women's basketball teams.
According to ABC 11 in Raleigh-Durham, Jacobs was taken to Duke Hospital after the crash. His injuries were not specified. The accident is under investigation and speed is believed to possibly be a factor.
Jacobs, a sophomore, didn't record any statistics as a member of the team in 2014. North Carolina Central's football team went 7-5 in 2014 – including a loss to East Carolina – and has FBS teams Florida International and Duke on its schedule in 2015.
The school said a memorial service will be held for Reid at 4 p.m. Wednesday at O'Kelly Riddick Stadium.
