Patriots Coach Bill Belichick extended the team's thoughts and prayers to Langi and his family and called it "a very unfortunate situation, one that I think shook everybody in the organization". However, they were taken to two separate hospitals.

According to, there was an accident on Fisher Street last night in which "fire crews had to cut the roof off of one of the cars involved to rescue the trapped driver". He played college football at Brigham Young University.

"They are hurt but they are alive and that's a blessing we are grateful for", he said. Langi's wife, Cassie, suffered fractures to both hips, broken ribs and is being evaluated for internal bleeding from the liver and spleen.
