The Bramblett's were transported to East Alabama Medical Center in critical condition. The cause of the crash remains under investigation by the Auburn Police Division. Rod Bramblett, 53, was airlifted to UAB Hospital in Birmingham, where he died of a severe closed head injury, the coroner's office said.

Prayers and condolences were expressed on social media to the Bramblett family and to the Auburn family.

Police and witnesses said Bramblett and his 52-year-old wife Paula were waiting to make a turn in a 2017 Toyota Highlander when they were hit in the rear by the 16-year-old in a 2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee, the Opelika-Auburn News reported.

Rod Bramblett, the radio voice of the Auburn Tigers, and his wife, Paula, died from injuries suffered in a vehicle accident Saturday night in Alabama, the Lee County Coroner's Office confirmed early Sunday morning.

He said "the moratorium was focused, very focused, on intercontinental missile systems, the ones that threaten the United States". He has suggested he will impose levies if the US can not win concessions from Japan and the European Union.

The driver of the other vehicle "was taken by ambulance to EAMC emergency room with non-life-threatening injuries", according to Harris. He had been doing baseball since 1993.

Bramblett attended Auburn, graduating in 1988, and has been named Alabama Sportscaster of the Year three times, as well as Sports Illustrated's Play-by-Play Sportscaster of the Year in 2013. In the one year away from WAUD he worked in Morristown, Tenn., for two different radio stations where he served as the play-by-play voice of Morristown West High School football. The Brambetts have two children, daughter Shelby and son Joshua.

While you may not be familiar with Rod Bramblett's name, you've heard his voice if you ever checked out the local call of Auburn's iconic Kick Six.
