Former Rams, Dolphins RB Isaiah Pead critically injured in car accident

Isaiah Pead, a second-round pick of the Rams in 2012, was critically injured Saturday in a car accident in Columbus, Ohio.

Pead, who played his college ball at Cincinnati, was driving a 2011 Cadillac CTS when the accident occurred.


The Cadillac struck the metal guardrail and continued through it. After going through the guardrail the Cadillac became airborne and struck several trees on the way down the embankment. It came to rest about 95 feet from the roadway.

During the crash, Pead was ejected from the vehicle.

Police said two witnesses stopped and called 911 and provided assistance to Pead and a passenger in the Cadillac, Wesley Richardson, 27, until police arrived at the crash scene.

Pead was taken to Grant Medical Center in critical condition. Richardson was transported in stable condition.

Most recently, Pead was signed by the Dolphins in March of 2016 and subsequently released by the team in October.
