This is the last thing you want to hear of Dallas Cowboys linebacker Josh Brent (above right) who was under the influence of alcohol when he got into a car accident that took the life of his teammate and friend, Jerry Brown. According to an eye witness that pulled up to the scene of the car accident caused by Josh Brent, Jerry Brown(above left) was alive at the scene of the accident and moaning in pain for someone to help him out of the wrecked and burning car, and Brent was refusing to help his friend according to a witness at the scene.
It’s impossible to know the pain Jerry Brown’s family is going through upon hearing that he died at the hands of his friend’s irresponsible actions, but to now hear that after the accident Josh Brent made no attempt to pull Jerry Brown out of the damaged-burning car, this just creates a new pain on-top of what they are already going through.
Here is what an eye witness who stopped to assist in the car accident had to say of the scene:
“As I was on the access road, I approached the aftermath of what was obviously a horrible, tragic incident. When I first pulled up to the scene, there was a little bit of a flame coming from the flipped vehicle, like in the engine area. Just a very small flame and I wasn’t too overly concerned for that. I jumped out of my vehicle and ran up to make sure that everyone was okay. As I got closer to the scene, there was a gentleman, which I later found out was Josh Brent, that was standing off to the right side of the wreckage, kind of pacing back and forth, you know, walking around.
“I asked him if he was okay, I said ‘Is everyone okay?’, ‘Are you alright?’, and he responded to me, he said that he was fine.
“The person that was in the other vehicle stepped out of her car and she said ‘I’ve already called 9-1-1, they’re on the way’. And I was like, I’m so relieved that, you know, single-car collision, no injuries, fine…But it took no time at all for this fire to really get engaged. It became very hot, very bright, very big and then I started to hear screams coming from inside the vehicle and it was a man’s voice saying ‘Help me’, you know, ‘Help, somebody help me’. And I turned and looked at the gentleman in the black pants (Brent), and I said ‘Is there a passenger? Is there somebody in the car?’. And he said ‘Yeah’. And I told him ‘Well, get him out of the car’.
“Josh looked at me and he said ‘He won’t get out of the car’. And I said ‘Well, you can’t just leave him in there and let him die. You’ve got to help him. Go get him’. And I commanded him several times and Josh looked at me, and he again said ‘He won’t get out of the car’. And I told him ‘You can’t stand here and watch him die. You’ve got to get him out’.”
Just horrible. Its just even more hurtful for us to hear the story of Jerry Brown’s death even more now, because it wasn’t like he died instantly at the impact of the car accident, his dying words for help and seeing his friend, Josh Brent leave him in the car for dead as flames from the car surged is just horrible and extremely sad. And it makes you now wonder if Jerry Brown could have been saved if Brent provided aid to him in a timely manner. If we feel Its unimaginable how Jerry Brown’s parents and family must feel.
