Ole Miss freshman forward Malik Ivin was reportedly involved in a fatal car accident that killed a man visiting the Rebels’ campus.
The 6-foot-10 Georgia native has missed each of Mississippi’s last three games because of “personal reasons,” according to head coach Kermit Davis. But it doesn’t look like Evin is going to face criminal charges.
The school also released a statement on the incident, but did not name Ivin as anyone involved.
The University of Mississippi Police Department is investigating a one-car motor vehicle incident that occurred on January 13, involving a student, that resulted in the death of a visitor to the campus. The victim initially suffered serious injuries and was taken by helicopter to a Memphis hospital, where he later died from his injuries. Our thoughts and sympathies are with the victim’s family and loved ones at this difficult time.
No word yet on when Evin will be back with the team.
