Former Wofford Football Player Dies in Lexington Head-On Crash

Posted on Oct 10, 2011
A deadly Lexington accident occurred on Tuesday, September 13, 2011, claiming the life of a former Terriers defensive lineman. Authorities said the fatal crash took place around 6:05 p.m. on U.S. Highway 1 near downtown Lexington, in front of Jim Hudson Ford in the 1200 block of West Main Street.

The 1992-1995 Wofford football player Brady Davis Weed III, 37, known as Tripp, was identified as the victim of the crash. According to Lexington officials, Weed was driving a 2006 Toyota Avalon and was hit by a 2008 GMC pickup truck.

Lexington police indicated that James Furman Prescott, 32, of Lexington, crossed the center lane of U.S. 1 while driving eastbound and collided with Weed's vehicle which was traveling westbound. This head-on collision caused Weed to die at the scene.

Prescott was injured in the wreck and was taken to Palmetto Heath Richland Hospital for medical care.

Lexington police are still investigating this Northern Kentucky crash, and no charges have been filed as of yet.

Drew, 9, one of his children, was injured in the accident but has since been released from the hospital. Sadly, Weed leaves behind a wife and three children.

Schachter, Hendy, & Johnson would like to extend our deepest condolences to the family and friends of Brady David Weed III.
