A reserve member of the Navy football team sustained serious injuries in a vehicle accident, the Capital Gazette is reporting.
According to the paper, reserve quarterback Ralph Montalvo was at home in Miami for the Thanksgiving holiday and a passenger in a one-car wreck. While few details are known, it’s not believed alcohol was a factor in the crash.
Montalvo is currently listed in critical condition with unspecified injuries, placed in a medically-induced coma in an effort to aid his recovery. Navy has confirmed that head coach Ken Niumatalolo flew to Miami yesterday to be with his player and his family.
The true freshman had spent most of the 2012 season on the scout team before injuries at his position prompted a promotion to third-team quarterback.
