According to multiple reports, University of Cincinnati freshman running back Chamoda Kennedy-Palmore was killed in a motorcycle accident this afternoon. Kennedy-Palmore, 19, was killed when the motorcycle he was riding was struck by an SUV, according to WLWT in Cincinnati.
Police said a motorcycle was southbound on Vine when a sport utility vehicle going west on Forest turned north on Vine, then left across the southbound lanes into a parking lot in the path of the motorcycle.
This is the second Cincinnati player to be killed in a car accident in almost exactly a year, as offensive lineman Ben Flick died in an accident last September. Some of Chamoda's teammates remarked on his passing and sent their condolences to his family on Twitter.
The Bearcats will travel to Columbus this weekend to face Ohio State, and will certainly do so with heavy hearts. Our thoughts and prayers go out to Kennedy-Palmore's family and friends.
