Missouri defensive lineman Harold Brantley severely injured in car crash

Sunday June 21st, 2015

Missouri defensive lineman Harold Brantley was seriously injured in a single-car crash Sunday afternoon, according to a crash report from the Missouri State Highway Patrol. 

Mizzou women's basketball player Maddie Stock was a passenger in the vehicle. Brantley and Stock were transported by ambulance to University Hospital in Columbia. Stock's injuries were listed as minor. Neither person was wearing a seatbelt. 

Brantley was the driver of the 2000 Chrysler Concorde, heading south on U.S. 63, away from the school's campus in Columbia, Mo. He began to travel "off the left side of the roadway, overcorrected, slid off the right side of the roadway, struck a guardrail and overturned," the report says. 

Brantley was listed in serious condition at the hospital as of Sunday evening, according to the Columbia Missourian. Stock's condition was listed as good. 

Brantley, a redshirt junior, played in all of the Tigers' 14 games as a sophomore in 2014. He made 10 starts and was an All-SEC honorable mention selection by the Associated Press.

Stock, a rising senior, played in all 33 of Mizzou's games last season, averaging 7.2 points, 2.9 rebounds and 1.5 assists in 20.9 minutes per game.
