Recommended Posts

Seeing a lot of info on Twitter that Cedric Benson may have passed in a motorcycle accident last night. Appears his brother posted about it on FB and a number of other folks plugged into UT talking on Twitter.

Damn Ced. He for sure lived in that area. I used work on 2222 and Ced would come in all the time. Was always nice as hell.

Damn, this news really sucks. Dude was a helluva RB and overcame so many challenges in his life to be one of the greats. Fuck 2222. Shit road with shit drivers.

He was a great one in burnt orange.

Damn. I stopped driving that way to/from downtown from NW Austin because I was convinced I was goin to get killed by some shitty driver in 2222, and I drive a full size crew cab pickup. Can’t imagine the carnage from a car at speed hitting a motorcycle turning onto 2222 from Mt. Bonnell Road.

That KXAN article has been updated, no names but, “Police say a mini-van was trying to cross the intersection when it ran into a motorcycle. Both riders of the motorcycle, a man and woman, were pronounced dead at the scene.”

🤘😢

When I was in my teens I had to drive that road to practice every day. I was almost killed one night by someone driving on the wrong side of the road on the curvy section going down towards county line. Probably one of the more dangerous stretches of road in Austin.

Shit, no.  I'll never forget watching him in the state championship game against Westlake at DKR.  Dude was such a beast then and lived up to it in college.

Saw him eating at TCP a month or two ago. RIP Ced
