Navy Quarterback Placed in Medically-Induced Coma After Car Accident
Ralph Montalvo, the third-string quarterback for the Navy football team, was critically injured in a car accident on Thanksgiving night. According to reports from family members, after Montalvo found out that his flight back home had been delayed, he and a friend went to get something to eat. Tragedy struck when his friend, who was driving the vehicle at the time, made a wrong turn onto a street with a cul de sac, rather than onto the main road where they had intended to turn. As the fog was very heavy that evening, visibility was extremely low and the car ended up going straight into a house at the end of the street. Although the cause of the accident is still under investigation, statements made by Navy Couch, Ken Niumatalolo indicate that both Montalvo and his friend are in comas as a result of their injuries. Montalvo is currently listed in critical condition and is fighting for his life after having to be placed in a medically-induced coma.
