Auburn announcer Rod Bramblett and his wife Paula were killed in a deadly car accident on Saturday, a source confirmed to AL.com.

The crash occurred on Shug Jordan Parkway at the intersection of West Samford Avenue.

According to Auburn police and the Lee County Coroner, Bill Harris, the 52-year-old Bramblett and his 53-year-old wife were in a 2017 Toyota Highlander that was struck in the rear by a Jeep Grand Cherokee driven by a 16-year-old.

The teen was transported to East Alabama Medical Center with non-life-threatening injuries, police said.

Rod Bramblett, the driver of the Highlander was airlifted to UAB Hospital in Birmingham, where he later died from a closed head injury. Paula Bramblett was also airlifted from the scene but had to be diverted to East Alabama Medical Center due to the severity of her injuries. She was pronounced dead in the emergency room from multiple internal injuries.

The coroner said alcohol was not believed to be a factor in the crash. The accident remains under investigation by Auburn police and the Lee County Coroner’s Office.

Bramblett has been broadcasting Auburn baseball games since 1993, and has been the lead Auburn broadcaster since 2003. He was named Sports Illustrated’s Sports Broadcaster of the Year in 2013, an award most notably earned from his unforgettable call of Auburn’s “Kick Six” win against Alabama.

Bramblett was also named sportscaster of the year in Alabama in 2006, 2010 and 2013.

How sad. Both Bramblett and wife Paula were killed when their car rear ended by a car driven by a 16 year old who was uninjured. He’ll have to live with that for the rest of his life. (NT)RussSunday, May 26, 07:51:26am
