BATON ROURGE – LSU kicker Colby Delahoussaye sustained minor injuries in a car accident that took the life of Nebraska punter Sam Foltz and former Michigan State punter Mike Sadler on Saturday night in Merton, Wisconsin.
The car crash occurred at 11:43 p.m. on Saturday on Beaver Lake Road. According to the Waukesha County Sheriff’s Department, the vehicle, which was driven by Sadler, lost control on a wet pavement and crashed into a tree. Foltz was sitting in the front passenger seat, while Delahoussaye was the lone passenger in the backseat.
Delahoussaye was in Wisconsin taking part in the Kohl’s Kicking Camp. Delahoussaye was a participant in the camp last week and was scheduled to serve as a camp counselor this week.
Delahoussaye was treated for unspecified minor injuries at Waukesha Memorial Hospital where he was later released. Delahoussaye is scheduled to return home to New Iberia on Monday.
"Our thoughts and prayers go out to the families of Sam Foltz and Mike Sadler,” LSU coach Les Miles said on Sunday afternoon. “We grieve for them. This isn't supposed to happen to young people who have so much to live for.
“We are so thankful that Colby will be able to return home to his family and friends.”
