The aunt and uncle of San Francisco 49ers tight end Delanie Walker were killed in a crash caused by an alleged drunken driver early Monday morning in Louisiana after the Super Bowl in New Orleans.
Walker posted on Twitter Wednesday morning that his relatives Alice and Bryan Young were killed in the crash just hours after the 49ers' 34-31 loss to the Baltimore Ravens.
“I'm going to miss y'all but I know they are in a better place,” he wrote, while also including two pictures he recently took with his aunt and uncle.
