(CBS) After his team’s loss to the Ravens in Super Bowl XLVII on Sunday, 49ers tight end Delanie Walker’s world was dealt another devastating blow.

According to a report, Walker’s aunt and uncle, Alice and Bryan Young, were killed in a car accident by a drunk driver around 5:30 a.m. on Monday morning.

The New Orleans Times-Picayune reported 26-year-old Nechole Thomas was driving a 2002 Mercedes C230 at a high rate of speed on the right shoulder of westbound elevated I-10 around 5:30 a.m. Monday and smashed into the back of a 2012 Nissan Altima that was stopped on the shoulder for unknown reasons.

Thomas escaped her vehicle with minor injuries, but the two passengers in the Altima, Alice and Bryan, were pronounced dead at the scene.
