Troy football player Jadarius Garner was found dead on a Mississippi highway. The Mississippi Highway Patrol says that the 20-year-old Garner was found lying on U.S. Highway 61 in Bolivar County early Thursday morning after two cars had run over him. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

State troopers, sheriff's deputies and rescue officials from Bolivar County arrived at 2:27 a.m. Thursday, responding to what was believed to be a two-vehicle accident about 3 miles south of O'reilly, Mississippi. The drivers of the two cars involved were not injured.

Garner was from Clarksdale, Miss. The defensive end had 21 tackles and three sacks as a sophomore for the Trojans after transferring from Jones County Community College.
