University of Connecticut running back Martin Hyppolite is in serious condition after a Saturday morning car crash that claimed the life of a 72-year-old New Hampshire man, according to The Hartford Courant.
Citing local law enforcement, the paper reported that Hyppolite was a passenger in a vehicle driven by 22-year-old Ryan Marchant. It collided with a Buick driven by 74-year-old Bruce Larson, who was pronounced dead at the scene.
The extent of Hyppolite's injuries are unknown, but he remained in serious condition at the Portsmouth Regional Hospital Monday. A UConn official told the paper that Hyppolite could be released this week, but added that his football career is "in doubt."
Hyppolite spent most of his junior season at fullback, and totaled 69 rushing yards on 19 carries. He played in all 12 Huskies games and scored a touchdown.
