Unfortunately, Nicolas died on Wednesday evening.
Nicolas was driving a silver Lexus that plowed into the back of a big rig on a Miami highway early Tuesday morning. Emergency responders raced to the scene and transported Jojo to a nearby hospital in critical condition.
But Jojo’s condition took a turn for the worse Wednesday and he passed at 5pm.
Officals are said to be still investigating the cause of the crash and have yet to rule out alcohol.
The 24-year-old played for the Miami Hurricanes during the 2007 to 2011 seasons and had a brief stint with the New York Giants in 2012.
