Earlier this week we blogged that 30-year-old NASCAR crew member William “Rowdy” Harrell and his wife were killed in a car crash in the Florida Keys. New information indicates that Harrell and his wife were on their honeymoon when the crash occurred. They had married on November 22.

FoxNews.com reports that the couple was driving on US-1 Lower in Matecumbe Key with Harrell behind the wheel when Harrell apparently veered into oncoming traffic. Harrell collided with a Ford F-250 pickup, killing him and his 23-year-old wife. The 62-year-old driver of the F-250 suffered minor injuries in the crash.

Harrell was not just known for participating in NASCAR. He had previously played as a linebacker for a University of Alabama football team that won three championships.

In a statement Hendrick Motorsports, Harrell’s employer, said that the couple “were such positive, giving and passionate people who could not have been a more perfect match.”
