Rod Bramblett, the radio voice of the Auburn Tigers, and his wife, Paula, died from injuries suffered in a car accident Saturday night in Alabama, the Lee County Coroner's Office confirmed early Sunday morning.
Paramedics responded to a two-car crash in Auburn shortly after 6 p.m. local time Saturday. Rod Bramblett, 53, was airlifted to UAB Hospital in Birmingham, where he died of a severe closed head injury, the coroner's office said. Paula Bramblet, 52, died of multiple internal injuries in the emergency room of East Alabama Medical Center.
This would be like us suddenly losing Paul Keels. Most fans probably know him from his Kick Six call: “AUBURNS GONNA WIN THR FOOTBALL GAME!!”
Tragic story. RIP.
