Ole Miss sophomore Park Stevens died Wednesday afternoon after his pickup collided with the rear of an 18-wheeler. According to a Mississippi State Highway Patrolman, “the driver of the pickup was killed on impact.”
Stevens had joined Ole Miss in the spring of 2013 as a walk-on. He had transferred to Ole Miss after spending two seasons at East Central Community College.
“Our team is hurting tonight with the loss of Park,” Ole Miss coach Hugh Freeze said in a statement Wednesday night. “He was a tremendous young man that was loved by his teammates and coaches, and Rebel Nation will never forget him. Our thoughts and prayers are with the Stevens family, his friends, our team and all those he touched during his life.”
