NEW ORLEANS (AP) - Louisiana State Police say a fiery crash hours after the Super Bowl killed relatives of San Francisco 49ers tight end Delanie Walker.
Trooper Melissa Matey says the crash about 5:30 a.m. Monday killed Alice and Bryan Young Sr. of Victorville, Calif.
Walker says in a Twitter posting that they were killed ``by a drunk'' at 5 a.m. Monday.
Matey says their vehicle was stopped on the shoulder of Interstate 10 in LaPlace, just west of New Orleans, when it was hit by a car driven by 26-year-old Nechole T. Thomas of Houston.
It took until Wednesday afternoon for the coroner to identify the badly burned victims.
Thomas was jailed on charges including vehicular homicide and drunken driving. Online jail records do not indicate whether she has an attorney.
