Keep Connecticut’s Martin Hyppolite and his family in your thoughts today: The Hartford Courant reports that the senior UConn running back is in intensive care at a New Hampshire hospital following a weekend car crash that left one person dead:
The accident occurred on Route 4 in Durham, near the University of New Hampshire campus. A vehicle driven by Bruce Larson, 74, was hit head-on by vehicle driven by Ryan Marchant, 22, of Wakefield, Mass., according to Durham Deputy Police Chief Rene Kelley. Larson, of Durham, was pronounced dead at the scene. Hyppolite, who is from Wakefield and lives in Malden, Mass., was a passenger in Marchant’s vehicle. Marchant was transported to Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center in Boston and his condition is unknown.
Hyppolite saw playing time in 11 games for the Huskies last season, recording 69 net rushing yards on 19 carries and one touchdown. Our thoughts are with him, his family and the Connecticut football community.
