Todd Gurley meets Denver family devastated by road rage

Yahoo Sports

Just prior to Sunday’s game against the Denver Broncos, Los Angeles Rams star running back Todd Gurley brought a small measure of happiness to a Denver family devastated by a violent act of road rage.

Meghan Bigelow and two of her children were shot in a Westminster, Colorado parking lot in June in a road rage incident. One of the boys died as a result of the gunfire, and Meghan Bigelow spent 54 days in a hospital. Jeremy Webster, 23, was arrested on charges of first-degree murder.

Sunday afternoon, Gurley met the Bigelow family before his game against the Broncos, a moment documented by the NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport:


It was a fine gesture by Gurley, and surely a welcome moment for a family that’s had too few of those in the past few months.

According to police reports of the June incident, Webster followed Meghan Bigelow for approximately a mile, and when Bigelow got out of her car with her three sons, Webster continued the verbal argument. He then allegedly pulled out a gun and shot the family, as well as another man in a nearby truck. Bigelow’s oldest son, Vaughn, was killed in the gunfire.

A GoFundMe created in the wake of the tragedy raised more than a quarter-million dollars.
