LSU kicker Colby Delahoussaye took to Twitter on Tuesday to make his first public comments after being the lone survivor of a car accident in Wisconsin that killed Nebraska punter Sam Foltz and former Michigan State punter Mike Sadler on Saturday.
Foltz and Sadler died in a single-car crash at 11:43 p.m. CT, according to a Waukesha County Sheriff's Department statement. Sadler was driving the car, the sheriff's department said.
The sheriff's department said the car lost control on wet pavement, left the road and struck a tree. Speed appears to have played a role in the crash, according to the department, which added that the incident remains under investigation.
Foltz and Sadler had been serving as student instructors at Kohl's Kicking Camp in Wales, Wisconsin, according to a camp spokesman.
Delahoussaye, who also attended the camp, had been in the backseat of the vehicle. He escaped the fiery crash and called 911 from his shattered phone, his father, Dwayne Delahoussaye, told The Advocate.
"All he remembers is that the fire was burning his leg, and that woke him up," Dwayne Delahoussaye said. "He was knocked unconscious. The burning sensation revived him. That's all he remembers. He doesn't even know how he got out. He doesn't know where he crawled out of."
Colby Delahoussaye suffered second-degree burns on his left leg, stitches on his head and bruises to his body, according to The Advocate.
Nebraska and Michigan State are each looking for ways to honor the memory of Foltz and Sadler, respectively. Michigan State is planning to establish a scholarship fund in Sadler's memory.
