Former Aggie Terrance Kiel Killed in car Accident

Former Texas A&M safety Terrence Kiel was killed after he was thrown from a Chevy sedan he was driving, police said Saturday.

Kiel, 27, was driving alone after leaving a party at about 10:15 Friday night when he hit a wall in San Diego's upscale Scripps Ranch neighborhood and was thrown from the car, police Sgt. Alan Hayward said.

Kiel was barely breathing when paramedics reached him and he died about an hour later, Hayward said.

Friends had tried to keep Kiel from driving home from the party, Hayward said, and witnesses told police he appeared to be driving in the wrong direction when he crashed.

Kiel had a history of issues regarding illegal drugs including felony charges that were later dropped because of 3 years probation served and community service. In Jan 2007 he was cited for urinating outside of a San Diego club.

Kiel was the 2nd round draft pick out of Texas A&M and played for four years for the Charges.
