Texas A&M officials said Tuesday that defensive lineman Polo Manukainiu died Monday in an automobile accident in Albuquerque, N.M.
Manukainiu was a 19-year-old redshirt freshman. Also killed in the crash were Gaius Vaenuku, an incoming member of the Utah football team, and Andrew Uhatafe. All three were from the town of Euless, Texas.
The driver of the vehicle and another passenger, whose names have not been released, were taken to the hospital with minor injuries.
New Mexico police say Manukainiu was a passenger in a 2002 Toyota Sequoia traveling southbound on U.S. 550. The vehicle drifted off of the road, the driver overcorrected, and the vehicle rolled several times.
Manukainiu and Uhatafe were ejected from the vehicle and died at the scene. Vaenuku was transported from the scene but was pronounced dead in the ambulance.
Officials say alcohol wasn't involved.
