Iowa linebacker injured in moped accident

Dalton Shaull

While the details are very scant — or even non-existent — a member of the Iowa football program sustained injuries in a vehicle accident, the school said in a press release Friday.

Linebacker Dalton Shaull, the university stated, was involved in a vehicle accident Thursday afternoon in the Iowa City area.  He remains hospitalized at UI Hospitals and Clinics in stable condition.

The specific nature of the injuries the redshirt freshman sustained were not detailed, nor was there any word on a possible release from the hospital.

The Cedar Rapids Gazette reports Shaull was riding a moped that rear-ended another vehicle and may have sustained some type of neck injury.

Shaull took a redshirt his true freshman season last year after joining the team as a walk-on.

    If the Gazette’s right, this is not a real proud moment.

    Is it just me, or is moped and scooter accidents becoming an epidemic in college today? That, my friend, is a very sad indicator for America’s future.

    Moped? NOT a bro move.

    Mopeds, like fat girls, are fun to ride… just don’t let your friends see you.

    A linebacker on a moped? Not a pretty site.
