“All three victims were occupants of a maroon Dodge Charger that was involved in the crash,” Maryland State Police said in a statement. “Hazel was the driver. Jackson was the front seat passenger and Lytton was in the rear of the vehicle.”

Jackson, 24, and Hazel, 23, were both pronounced dead at the scene, while Lytton, 24, was transported to a local hospital where he was subsequently pronounced dead.

According to Maryland State Police, three vehicles were involved in the crash, including a silver Infinity Q50 and a silver Chevrolet Impala.

The driver of the Infinity Q50 reportedly attempted to change lanes at a high rate of speed, first hitting the Charger and then the Impala.

Jackson was a star player at Oregon before being selected in the fourth round (108th round) of the 2024 NFL Draft by Minnesota.

“I am devastated by this news. Khyree brought an infectious energy to our facility and our team. His confidence and personable personality immediately attracted his teammates,” Vikings head coach Kevin O’Connell said in a statement Saturday. “In our short time together, it was clear that Khyree would develop into a great professional football player, but what was even more impressive was his desire to be the best person he could be for his family and those around him.

“I am speechless. My heart goes out to Khyree’s family, friends, teammates and coaches.”
