Report: UConn RB Hyppolite stable after car accident

UConn running back Martin Hyppolite was a passenger in a car involved in a fatal accident on Saturday in New Hampshire.

According to a story in the Manchester Union Leader, New Hampshire judge Bruce Larson of Durham, N.H. was driving west on Rt. 4 in a 2000 Buick around 9 a.m. on Saturday when 2004 Chrysler Sebring  driven by Ryan Merchant of Wakefield, Mass. collided nearly head on Larson's vehicle.

The 74-year-old Larson was pronounced dead at the scene. Merchant was listed in critical condition and according to the Union-Leader, Hyppolite was a passenger in Merchant's car and is in stable condition in Portsmouth Regional Hospital.

Hyppolite, a redshirt senior who saw time at both tailback and fullback as a junior, carried the ball 19 times for 69 yards during the 2012 with 50 of them coming on a touchdown run against Buffalo. He also had a 10-yard reception against North Carolina State.
