Utah State freshman defensive end Brady Holt is in critical condition after a car crash over the weekend, according to The Salt Lake Tribune.

Utah Highway Patrol said Holt’s SUV crashed into the highway median and flipped over after he overcorrected. He was not wearing a seatbelt and was thrown from the vehicle.

Holt’s mother, Christy, posted an update on her son’s condition on social media. 

“As most of you have heard, Brady was in a very serious car accident over the weekend,” she wrote. “This is his mom, Christy. Brady has been unconscious since they found him. This is what is most concerning to the doctors. They need him to wake up. We are praying for miracles for Brady. Thank you to all who have reached out to us, his sisters and our family. He is in the biggest fight of his life.”

Police were still investigating the cause of the crash on Monday.
