Dallas police revealed that the vehicle Gladney was in was speeding when it clipped another vehicle causing a crash, according to TMZ.

A female in the vehicle was also killed. TMZ didn’t report if Gladney or the woman was driving at the time of the crash.

The entire situation is absolutely horrific and tragic, and there’s no other way to describe it. Gladney was only 25 years old and had just made his return to the NFL when he signed with the Cardinals.

He should have had decades of success ahead of him. Instead, he’s dead in his mid-20s after the car he was in was allegedly speeding and clipped another vehicle.

It’s a terrible situation, and it’s an incredibly tragic and unfortunate reminder of how fragile life can be.
